Prep serves up annual Christmas dinner


Prep served its annual Christmas dinner on Sunday, Dec. 10. Sponsored by the Outreach Club, this event provides a free meal to those in need within our community. This year, Outreach Club successfully served two Christmas dinners. The first dinner was served at Community Shelter Services, which Outreach Club officer Mike Miceli attended.

“At the Christmas dinner, we were able to provide people with a hot meal and something to help get them in the Christmas spirit,” said Mike. “About twenty volunteers from Prep went to the Community Shelter Services in the afternoon to serve dinner. Volunteers were tasked with making and serving food for those who are struggling with homelessness. I was tasked with handing out presents to children and making everyone feel welcome and respected at the dinner.”

The second dinner was served at the First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant, as a part of their weekly Sunday Supper. This dinner was attended by Outreach Club officer Ally Nawrocki.

“We served the less fortunate meals for about two hours,” Ally said. “Before we served the meals, we set up placemats that Outreach Club made a couple weeks prior as a service project. The volunteers handed out meals, made sure to ask those served if they wanted something, and had the chance to speak to them, which was truly a great opportunity.

This event not only brought joy for those within our community, but it also gave the students joy knowing that they had helped others.

“For me, the Christmas dinner meant a lot to be a part of,” Mike said. “It represents the mission that Prep students are called to: service to others, giving respect to those who deserve it, and helping our community.”

Ally shared a similar sentiment, encouraging others to get out of their comfort zone and getting involved.

“I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to serve the Christmas meals to those who are less fortunate,” Ally said. “It was an experience that I will never forget. Despite the hard times those people go through every day, they had a smile on their faces, and expressed their appreciation towards us.”
