Trio of restaurants banding together to host free Community Christmas Dinner on Dec. 25 in Williamsburg
The B Squad Project, a local charity, is helping to host a Community Christmas Dinner that will be held at the Williamsburg Pizza Hut from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Christmas Day.
The effort is a collaboration between Pizza Hut, Jon Eva Jack’s restaurant in Corbin, and Oral Lewis, who runs a local catering business and restaurant out of Brashear’s Market in Williamsburg.
The event is free and open to any member of the public, who wants to attend.
B Squad Project Founder Shannon Barman said that after her grandmother passed away, she wanted to do something for people in the community in memory of her grandmother, Ruth McCullah, and the idea of a Christmas dinner is something she came up with as a way to lift her spirits.
“I thought what better way of doing that than to share her memory with different folks in the community, who could probably use a big hot meal during Christmas. If they didn’t have a place to go, they have one now,” she said. “It is an open invitation to whoever wants to come and join us.”
The Christmas dinner is being held in honor of McCullah and Barman’s aunt, Florence Buchanan, who passed away Nov. 9.
