Union Station Homeless Services to Feed Hundreds on Christmas

In a show of compassion and holiday spirit, hundreds of volunteers of all ages will gather on Christmas Day to serve meals and cheer at Union Station Homeless Services’ second annual Holiday at the Station.
Union Station expects to serve more than 500 plates of food on Monday, Dec. 25. Meal recipients will include individuals and families experiencing homelessness or poverty, senior citizens and those who are alone for Christmas or unable to afford a holiday meal.
Traditionally, this Christmas event has been held in Pasadena’s Central Park, but in following last year’s success of Holiday at the Station, Union Station will once again be hosting the festivities at the Adult Center on Raymond Avenue, a 56-bed emergency shelter for men and women. Volunteers will help prepare and serve meals — including Christmas ham, macaroni and cheese, corn, green beans, dinner rolls and pie — to all who are hungry at Union Station’s Adult Center on Christmas Day.
Volunteer registration for this event is still open and community members are invited to help Union Station collect the ingredients and kitchen supplies needed to prepare a great Christmas meal. The wish list of much-needed items is available online. Donors may drop off these supplies in the indicated sizes at the Adult Center (412 S. Raymond Ave. in Pasadena, Monday- Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.).
