Soldier gives back to the community during Greensboro dinner
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Hundreds gathered for the third annual Christmas Dinner for the Homeless Sunday afternoon at the Greensboro Sportsplex.
This year soldier, Rian Mack said the event is more than a Christmas dinner but a holiday experience for the whole family.
Families enjoyed a Christmas dinner, face painting, music and could collect clothing and up to five toys all donated by sponsors in the Greensboro community.
“When I came back from Iraq three years ago after doing a tour in Iraq and living in a third world country, I just realized how much we take for granted,” Mack said.
Mack and her volunteers served about 750 families.
