Each year Bridge House / Grace House hosts three dinners. These three events provide a traditional holiday meal, toiletries, clothing from the Bridge House / Grace House Thrift Stores, and fellowship to the homeless and indigent population of the Greater New Orleans Area. The dinners also help to raise awareness—within the homeless and indigent population—of the substance abuse treatment services provided by Bridge House / Grace House.
Upcoming Bridge House / Grace House dinners for those in need include:
- Thanksgiving, Sunday, November 23, 2014 11:00 AM-1:00 PM at 1160 Camp Street in New Orleans (As of 9/24/2014, all Thanksgiving volunteer positions have been filled!)
- Christmas, Sunday, December 21, 2014 11:00 AM-1:00 PM at 1160 Camp Street in New Orleans
