Salvation Army To Offer Dinner, Hair Cuts And Activities To Those In Need On Christmas

The Salvation Army is inviting those in need to Christmas Dinner. Director Mark Sorenson says it will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Christmas Day, at the Phoenix Convention Center . He says there’s a lot more than a hot meal involved.

“We do haircuts for people that maybe haven’t been to a salon or gotten their hair cut for a long time,” Sorenson said. “We have pictures with Santa Claus, games for the kids, plus music going on so it’s quite a day.”

Sorenson says it’s a big day for volunteers, and over a thousand people have already signed up to help that day.

In the wee small hours of the morning, when most of us are working on REM sleep, Morning Edition host and reporter, Dennis Lambert busily prepares the news and information KJZZ listeners hear as they prepare for the day. He did that for KJZZ listeners from 1996 to 2016. Dennis retired in 2016.
