Goddard Riverside Community Center will host its annual holiday dinner on Christmas Day, December 25, and serve more than 1,300 meals to members of the Upper West Side community and residents throughout New York City. Both new and returning volunteers will join the Goddard Riverside committee to help serve meals to individuals and families from the neighborhood and residents of Goddard’s older adults housing facility. These volunteers will assist in serving and delivering hot meals and holiday cheer to on-site guests and to individuals who are unable to leave their homes.
