Beginning several years, ago, the Friends of Christmas forged a partnership with the Homeless Services Center to provide a hot, delicious meal and bring some holiday cheer during the Christmas season to our houseless and less fortunate community members. And although these dinners, hosted on Christmas Eve, were wonderful in their own way, we recognized that our community provided no meal on the that very special day of Christmas itself.

Determined to meet this need, in 2016 the Friends along with our partners the local Veterans for Peace, approached our good friends at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History with the idea of collaborating on a Christmas Day meal and celebration. The result was the first "Christmas at the MAH" which provided not only a delicious meal and good cheer, but clothing and other expressions of love and support from our community to those without during the holiday season.

This year, the Friends of Christmas and the Veterans for Peace are very pleased to be again be partnering with the Museum of Art & History for the "3rd Annual Christmas at the MAH". We invite the community to not only find a few holiday dollars to contribute but also to donate warm clothes which we will distribute to our diners on Christmas Day. Please join us in making this season one of joy and generosity for ourselves and our less fortunate friends and neighbors. Meal service will begin at noon on Christmas Day and dinner will be served until 3:00pm.

Monetary contributions can be made on line at:

Donations of warm clothing or other items can be dropped off at the United Nations Association store located at 903 Pacific Avenue in Downtown Santa Cruz. Please call Steve Pleich at (831) 466-6078 to arrange for a time convenient for you to drop items off.

Happy Holidays from the Veterans for Peace, the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History and the Friends of Christmas.
