 NOEL CHRISTMAS DAY DINNER 

 

The Noel Community is preparing for their 15th annual dinner on Christmas Day.  The volunteers serve a free turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings from 11:00am to 2:00pm at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea on 3rd and Baltimore Streets in Ocean City. This event has become an important part of the Christmas celebration for many including the homeless, unemployed, underemployed, shut-in, and those who are alone. Noel provides gifts and toys to many who attend. All items are free and all are welcome.

Again this year, there is a need for monetary donations. Checks made payable to the Noel Community can be mailed to PO Box 1207 in Ocean City MD, 21843. Your financial support to purchase items for the dinner is appreciated.

The Noel Community with the generosity from Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Berlin, Fenwick, Bishopville, Selbyville, and the surrounding neighborhoods is able to make the Christmas celebration special for many in our community. The Noel Community appreciates the support and hopes you will consider their request again this year. If you have any questions please call 410-289-3453.

Faithfully Yours,
The Noel Community
