Christmas at Lookout

Print Email

Dec. 27 – Christmas time is special to the Lookout Society.

It can be a time of stress and lonliness to our shelter guests and tenants so we go out of our way to help people enjoy it.

This year we provided gifts, stockings and meals to those we serve. On Christmas Day we celebrated with party that included music and a visit from Santa.

The Lookout Society also benefited from the big hearts of many donors.

Here`s a photo slideshow that helps capture the experience of Christmas at Lookout.
