Help wanted for upcoming Lord's Day Dinner

Niagara Gazette — Looking for a way to give back for the holidays? Matthew and Yvonne Davis know just the place to help.

The husband-and-wife team, who've run The Lord's Day Dinner for 30 years in the city, need both generous support and day-of volunteers for this year's edition, feeding the less fortunate of the region.

First for the physical volunteers, which are still needed, Yvonne Davis said. To assist in this year's Christmas Day dinner, perspective helpers should contact her by calling 284-6973 before Tuesday to inform her of intentions and to receive an assignment.

Though her helpers are important to the quality of the meal, she said another part requiring immediate assistance is the donated goods. The family operation isn't in need of much food, though hams could be useful, she said. Instead, supply donations of hygiene products like toothbrushes, toothpaste and washcloths or gently used winter clothing would be extremely helpful.

Of course, she added, any monetary donations would also help this year's cause with purchasing paper plates and napkins, plastic wrap for leftovers, take-out boxes and Styrofoam cups for drinks.

She said any donation could be dropped off at the side door of 1317 Ashland Ave. Any checks should be made payable to The Lord's Day Dinner.

Meals will be served from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 917, 2435 Seneca Ave. at Hyde Park Boulevard.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
