Findley Halliday hosts a Finn-fabulous Soup Kitchen


Over a hundred island residents were treated to a delicious holiday meal on Christmas Day thanks to Findley Halliday. Halliday decided to give back to the less fortunate during this festive season, and along with the help of Raise Me Up and the business community, organized a Soup Kitchen that served a traditional meal on Christmas Day.Christmas Soup Kitchen-4
A dining hall was setup on Black Coral Street in front of the Raise Me Up headquarters, and a full meal was served. From an an appetizer of cheese dip, to the traditional ham and turkey entree with sides and sweet treats for dessert. The goal was to feed people and families in need of a Christmas lunch that could be proudly presented on any table in the country, and just have a fun celebration for those who would truly enjoy it,” said Halliday. At the end of the dinner, gifts were given to the children in attendance. After the soup kitchen ended, there was even left over toys and goodies and those were delivered to residents in the San Mateo Area.Christmas Soup Kitchen-1
