Local students serve Annual Angel Tree Dinner to the poor and homeless, in the true spirit of the holidays
Lake Worth/Boynton Beach, Fla. – December 18, 2018 – The eighth-grade students of St. Joseph’s Episcopal School prepared and served a Christmas dinner for approximately 20-30 homeless and poor persons through Holy Redeemer Episcopal Church in Lake Worth.
Each student was asked to provide a designated food item, and, as a suggestion, use his or her own money to pay for the contribution.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to help the students understand that the true spirit of Christmas is about giving,” said Reverend Lynne E. Jones Chaplain and St. Joseph’s Sacred Studies Teacher.
School community service hours were given to students (Grades 6 and 7 for preparations; Grade 8 for accompanying Pastor Lynne to prepare and serve the dinner.) The students also gave out shoes that had been collected by local Episcopal congregations.
Dinner was served at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018 at Holy Redeemer Episcopal Church, 3730 Kirk Road, Lake Worth, FL 33461.
