Moms & Dads, we have dinner covered!  At the beginning of the route, you’ll have a chance to purchase a ticket to redeem for a chili dinner with all the fixings and/or beer cheese box with crudité and crackers upon exit. By the time you get through the nativity, your chili will be ready to pick up as you head out and on your way!  Proceeds benefit the resident honor fund. Just as Mary & Joseph were searching for shelter long ago, many older adults are also searching for shelter.
Our mission is to provide HOPE, HOUSING, AND HEALTHCARE to older adults throughout the Bluegrass. Donations from supporters like you help us continue our ministry.
