Putting others first this Christmas, that's what volunteers at the Open Door Mission are doing on Wednesday. Christmas dinner was served for an anticipated 300 people on West Main Street. The Open Door Mission provides a holiday dinner, including gifts. For many people who might not have anything this Christmas.

"There is a need for it," says shelter supervisor David Appleton. "People in this economy are so tight, that anything that happens, they end up coming here for a meal. Some of them they want to come here some they have to come here."
