“The holidays can be a tough time for people who are without a home. They are missing their families. They often suffer with intense feelings of sadness and loneliness. This meal surrounds our guests with people who care deeply,” said executive director Randy Benson, of Kelowna’s Gospel Mission. “

We meet together with friends, have a great meal, laughter and, even if just for a few hours, forget our worries and have fellowship and belonging. The generous people of Kelowna make this special meal possible.”

Kelowna’s Gospel Mission’s needs extend beyond Christmas and help is greatly appreciated. To get involved with the mission visit www.kelownagospelmission.ca to donate, volunteer or give an in-kind gift.
