Hot Meals Around The Corner
Although Christmas time is inherently thought of as a period of luxury and joy, not everyone
is fortunate enough to experience those comforts. A recent study conducted by the United
States Department of Housing and Urban Development has revealed that an estimated 5,258
citizens are experiencing some form of homelessness.
A warm place to rest and a full stomach could mean the world to someone, but places to
get it aren’t always well known. The following establishments are not only open to the public
on December 25, but also places to volunteer if someone was interested in giving back to the
community this season.
Compassion Center in Indianapolis is a non-profit Christian organization that feeds the
homeless from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday

The organization is located at 2616 S. Shelby St Indianapolis, IN 46203

Q: How early in advance do you tend to plan for Friday nights? How much have you spent? A: I usually plan for each game about two to three days ahead of time. It helps me to not stress out over whether I think I’m prepared or not. I have spent a little over 500 dollars on this season alone. You have to have the cash if you want to make sure everyone can participate.
Q: What has been your favorite theme overall this season? A: My favorite them is a toss-up between hick night and hawaiian night. T…
