Christmas Dinner with Friends at Meals on Wheels
On December 14 we headed to Meals on Wheels to help prepare and package Christmas dinners for their annual Dinner with Friends event.
Media personalities, politicians, and other local celebrities were also on hand to help, and the Edmonton Oilers Octane Girls cheer team showed up to spread a little Christmas cheer.
We were put to work chopping potatoes and turnips, and because we love Meals on Wheels so much, we even chopped the onions. Then we sent it all off to be cooked, then packaged on the line.
Not only does this annual event provide Christmas dinners for people around the city, but it’s also part of a major fundraising effort with a goal of raising $75,000 to help keep the organization’s services at an affordable price. We’re always happy to help out the wonderful team at Meals on Wheels and always have a great time doing it!
