Homers’ Sports Pub Will Host A Dinner For The Less Fortunate

HOMERS PUB, DOWNTOWN WOODSTOCK WILL HOST A DINNER FOR UNFORTUNATE PEOPLE

 One of my neighbouring businesses will be hosting a dinner for people who have no whre else to go on Dec 25.
 Homers’ Sports pub operator, Ruby Gabris says that she will be handing out  holiday dinners  to people after coming to realize that many people in Woodstock are unable to provide for themselves and do not have families or anywhere esle to go on that day. Most places are closed on Dec 25 due to the holidays. 
 Homers’ dinner starts at 4pm and will include all of the fixings, coffee,tea and desserts. Last year she saw more than 30 people come out for lunch.
 This is the second year that Homers’ has opened its’ doors to the less fortunate and Ruby says that she will carry on the tradition as long as she’s around.
 With the current economic crisis, I am sure that she will have a full house. Homers’ is located on Dundas St, Woodstock, a few doors down from city hall.(you know, that bastion of accountability!)

    Interesting comparison. While Homer’s remains open to give some relief to the less fortunate City Hall will be bolted shut with the lights out.

    My compliments and a Merry Christmas to Ruby.

    And of course the “less fortunate” wear a sign. Come on, how about just giving money to the 7/24 agencies that meet these needs year-round.

    Yeah. Why not just throw money at professional charities rather than actually doing something at a personal level to make a difference? What is this Ruby person thinking?

    That is great. I worked with Ruby at wal-mart quite a little while ago and she was even doing charities then, its great to hear that she still helps people in need. Great Job Ruby!!!
