Individuals and families in need of a Christmas meal today have a few options in Denton.
For the second year, Sweetwater Grill & Tavern will have a Christmas luncheon at the restaurant for those in the community in need. The meal is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. but will continue until the food is gone, organizers said.
The luncheon is one of three activities that the grill is involved in this holiday season for the Denton community, says Karen Meredith, who co-owns the well-known eatery with her husband, Jim.
They have been collecting coats and distributing them at Sweetwater and will continue to accept donated coats. In addition, anyone in need of a coat is welcome to stop by through today.
They are accepting donations of money, food and help from volunteers. Additional information is available by calling 940-484-2888.
Singing Oaks Church of Christ, 101 Cardinal Drive, will also serve a Christmas meal at 1 p.m. Transportation will be provided from Quakertown Park and across from the Salvation Army. The bus will run from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Return transportation will also be provided.
The Salvation Army in Denton will have its regularly scheduled dinner at 6:30 p.m. for anyone needing a meal. Officials said everyone ranging from needy families to the homeless to students are welcome.
The Salvation Army is at 1508 E. McKinney St.
