Santa Claus Came to Town Early

On Tuesday December 20, West End House welcomed over 400 young people, families, and community members for an evening of giving, joy, and holiday cheer. The night kicked off with a delicious holiday meal prepared from scratch, and was followed by an opportunity for each young person to receive a gift from Santa.

The Italian-inspired menu for the evening included vegetable lasagna, sweet and hot Italian sausage, beef and turkey meatballs, sautéed tricolor peppers and onion, multigrain garlic bread with Parmesan, and garden salad with caramelized onion vinaigrette—as well as mini cannoli for dessert. This delicious meal was prepared by Senior Director of Fitness and Nutrition Lisa Smith and Kids in Motion Café Manager Maria Motta, with support from West End House Peer Leaders and volunteers.

West End House wishes you and your family a very happy holiday season!
