Despite the month of December just barely underway, St. Marys residents are already planning to do something special for members of the community.

Rachael O'Neill and Joe Robson said they were chatting recently about how difficult this year has been and what they could do to give back and make this holiday season a bit more jolly for their fellow residents. That was when they came up with the idea of a free Christmas dinner for those in need.

The duo has teamed up with Gordy's to deliver a limited number of free dinners on Christmas Eve to St. Marys residents. Please remember that quantities are limited and this is meant only for people truly in need.

If you or someone you know is in need, please email, or, for those who don't email, you can send your request to Box no. 9, N4X 1A9, in St. Marys. Donations will also be accepted via e-transfer or can be picked up by O'Neill.

When submitting the name of yourself or someone else to receive a free Christmas Eve dinner, make sure to include the following information:

• Name

• Address

• Phone number and email address (if applicable)
