The Thea Bowman Center was a bustling and joyful place in the weeks leading up to the Christmas holiday. Many volunteers decorated the Center with several Christmas trees, wreaths and twinkling lights. Several churches and organizations planned children’s activities, caroling, decorating and meals, along with many donated gifts. Between 200 and 300 meals were served each Saturday in December and nearly 500 grocery bags and 300 turkeys were distributed on December 20th. The Christmas spirit was felt all around the Center.
