During the Christmas season, a number of churches and charitable organizations serve the poor and the destitute a traditional Christmas dinner (roast turkey with vegetables and dessert). Funded in 1910 by Reverend Pike, a Methodist Chruch minister, The Bissell Center has reached out to the Edmonton communitiy for over 80 years by providing services daily for the residents of the inner city. An annual Christmas dinner is cooked and served by volunteers to over 1 000 people on New Year’s Day, allowing all involved to partake in the spirit of giving.
