On Sunday, Dec. 20, the Italian restaurant fed over 200 people and donated nearly $2,000 in food to area homeless gathered at St. Dorothy’s Catholic Church in Glendora.
Spaghetti Eddie’s was just one of many groups who came together to help the local community, including Mayor Karen Davis, area businesses and residents, assist homeless people during the holiday season by providing warm meals, clothing and showers.
Socks and underwear were also being collected at the restaurant in the weeks leading up to St. Dorothy’s opening its doors.
Spaghetti Eddie’s general manager, Teri Bainbridge, along with two team members joined Mayor Davis and other volunteers to help serve the food donated by the Italian eatery. Davis came dressed in a festive outfit and sang Christmas Carols.
“The event is so well orchestrated,” said Bainbridge. “We were very happy to be involved.”
St. Dorothy’s Church, 241 S. Valley Center Ave., will remain open from December 17 to January 1; and Glenkirk Presbyterian Church, 1700 E. Palopinto Ave., will open its doors from January 2 to January 15.
