The Family Friendly Flathead Gym in Evergreen opened their doors this Christmas to everyone who needed or wanted a place to go. They were serving chili bowls, salad and rolls to anyone who wanted to eat. There was also a gift table full of free gifts and free clothes for every person that wanted something.
This was their first year doing this, and the organizer of the event said that he couldn't be more thankful for the volunteers.
"We had an enormous amount of volunteers who gave up their Christmas to come out and do this for us today. It's pretty humbling to me, it's our best volunteer turnout that we've ever had," said James Blair.
Blair said that he didn't know how many people to expect. He said the turnout so far has been pretty low but they will keep their doors open for anyone who wants a place to be on Christmas day.
