Christmas dinner at The Haven/PACEM

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — The Haven serves dinner to the homeless every night, but Christmas night was special.

Violinists played Christmas tunes to ring in the night. Christmas night also followed with a meal served by volunteers.

Jayson Whitehead, executive director for PACEM, says this is important to bring this to those who don’t have a home for Christmas.

“It’s very cold tonight and we’re an emergency shelter, so we’re offering food, shelter and a place to sleep tonight,” said Whitehead.

Whitehead also says PACEM’s impact is to give those who are most vulnerable a place to stay in the winter.
