Superiorland Kiwanis and The Salvation Army of Marquette County team up to provide Community Christmas Dinner

Marquette County, MI (December 15, 2020) – Superiorland Kiwanis and The Salvation Army will again team up to provide a Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day in Marquette and the surrounding area. The meals will be a traditional turkey dinner with all of the fixings and dessert. Dinners can be picked up or delivered from Noon-2PM. All participants are asked to call 855-500-0919 for either pick-up or delivery of meals. They expect to serve over 500 meals on Christmas Day as they extend this tradition of holiday cheer.

Additionally, volunteers are needed for delivery of dinners and serving meals. Volunteers are asked to call the same number at 855-500-0919. Volunteers will pick up meals at The Salvation Army, 1009 Baraga Ave., Marquette starting at 11AM and deliver to families and others who would like to celebrate Christmas with a special dinner.

“This continues a long tradition of providing a meal at Christmas for our community”, said Fred Anderson of Superiorland Kiwanis. “We will really miss not being able to serve sit down meals at The Salvation Army due to COVID-19 restrictions, and so we will need extra volunteers for delivery this year”. Dinners will be only available for pick-up or delivery this year.

“Superiorland Kiwanis handles all of the cooking each year”, said Captain Doug Winters. “It is great how this service club has stepped up each year for three decades to partner and make this holiday special for so many people. This dinner is a credit to them and their commitment to community service, and the food is always fantastic”, said Winters. “This is a great way to show Christmas love, especially during these hard times”, said Winters.
