Campbell AME soup kitchen patrons received a special treat Wednesday at the King Street East Church, as Union Gas and regular soup kitchen volunteers hosted a Christmas party. Patrons received turkey, mashed potatoes and all the trimmings.
Church pastor Alcott Germany said the dinner reminds him somewhat of Thanksgiving dinners of his youth where the family would all gather, eat, talk and laugh.
“That’s what we do here,” he said. “This is something down here. We’re all family.”
