This brunch is like an extended family potluck and the more "family," the merrier. For those able to cook, a dish to pass is appreciated. Food should arrive 15-30 minutes before mealtime in a disposable container, ready to serve at noon. Entrees, side dishes and appetizers are all welcome. Details are on the agency's website at www.lazarushouseonline.com.

For those who wish to attend and/or provide a special dish, a courtesy RSVP with your plans is appreciated, but not required. To RSVP, email juliep@lazarushouseonline.com or call Lazarus House between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays at (630) 587-2144.

"Many people in the community are looking for a way to help others," said Executive Director Liz Eakins. "We welcome volunteers to bring food and share fellowship at our brunch. This brunch is a chance for our guests to be part of this wonderful community and to not feel alone on Christmas Day."

People who wish to help in other ways this season are asked to consider a financial gift. Cash contributions of any size and gift cards to local general merchandise stores and pharmacies are greatly appreciated, especially given the current state of the economy.

Lazarus House is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
