Hello all, we would like to thank everyone for their out pouring of support and inquiries regarding volunteering for this event. Fortunately with our partner Izenberg’s doesnt need any additional volunteers to help handout meals this year. Thank you so much for your continued support, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you.
Its official! We are officially a nonprofit according to Uncle Sam. It's so much easier for us to take donations this year so we can feed as many people as possible. To make online donations, please visit us at: http://conshohockenfreechristmasdinner.com
Hello All, a few of you have reached out regarding the Conshohocken Free Christmas Dinner. Unfortunately we will not be holding the dinner this year. We ask that those who have donated and helped in previous years, kindly send donations directly to the Colonial Neighborhood Council (CNC). We thank you for your support and look forward to working with all of you next year! Have a very Happy Holiday Season!
We are still calculating the final tally however we estimate that we distributed over 500 meals on Christmas day! Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and the borough for making this year's event a huge success!!!

Status Update: Conshohocken Borough has agreed to allow us to use the The Fellowship House to distribute food to needy friends and families on Christmas day! Special thanks to the borough manager, Richard Manfredi and all the council members who helped us in this great cause. Stayed tuned for more details.
2015 UPDATE!! - We approached borough council on Wednesday night about allowing us access to the The Fellowship House on Christmas Day. We requested they open the doors so we can once again help those in our community who need it. As soon as they tell us their decision, we will let you know.
2014 UPDATE. Thank you for all the inquiries this year. We had planned on hosting the Conshohocken Free Christmas Dinner again this year, but because of the generous donations made by everyone to the Colonial Neighborhood Council over the last few months we were told that they did not need our help. But rest assured, we plan on being available next year if the need once again arises. Thanks again for all the support.
Josh and I will soon post the summary of how all this wonderful community supported to help our great town, please bare with us as we need time to break down the numbers. With that said this event surpassed either one of our expectations, so In advanced I'm thanking you all!
