Every Sunday, members of the Fourth Street Seventh Day Adventist Church in northwest D.C. serve up breakfast for those in need. But once a year, the church's neighbors from Mount Sinai Baptist add their services to help put on a Christmas party.
Trent Smith was one of about 150 people who came out for the event. He said he thought he wasn't going get anything for Christmas this year, but it turned out to be — in his words — "a good day."
Volunteers served up hundreds of meals Sunday. Those who came to the brunch left with not only a full belly, but also a Christmas card, a Bible, a brand new heavy coat, thermal underwear and toiletries.
