Free Christmas dinners provided by American Red Cross

      The annual Red Cross Christmas Day Dinner, sponsored by Bi-Lo Charities, is free to anyone who needs a hot meal or a place to fellowship on this special occasion.

      The Red Cross expects to provide some 6,000 meals, including home deliveries to those who cannot get to a church site.

      This event is provided free to the public thanks to Bi-Lo Charities' sponsorship and donations from the community, and with the assistance of over one hundred American Red Cross volunteers.

      Cost of this event is expected to exceed $16,000.
