LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Hundreds of people from around the community came together for the Community Christmas Dinner.

The Lyn Treece Boys and Girls Club hosted the event held at Lafayette Jeff High School on Monday.

Several local businesses donated food and toys for all the families that visited.

From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., visitors were able to get a hot lunch, take their children to the toy room to pick out a toy and even walk out with food to go.

Organizer Steve Bultinck said it would not be possible without the volunteers.

"There's so many people that help us and that's on the corporate side. And then of course, you've got individuals that give up their Christmas Day to be here, I don't really know how to put that into words," said Bultinck.

Each year the event is open to anyone who wants to stop in.

"We don't care what your social/economic background is, we don't ask for your I.D. Just come on through the door. You could be a millionaire, you could be a pauper, it doesn't matter," said Bultinck.

Volunteers also delivered more than one thousand meals to people around the community who could not make it to the Christmas Dinner.
