Eau Claire (WQOW) - A group of volunteers was busy making sure people had at least one Christmas dinner around the holidays today. The AT&T Pioneers have been serving meals to area residents for over 30 years. We caught up with some of the volunteers as they headed out for the holidays.
"Turkey, homemade dressing, real mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and then we had homemade cookies, cranberries, milk, and rolls," said Judy Schwoch.
This holiday season around 250 area residents will be receiving a special gift; a warm Christmas meal.
"This has been part of my Christmas for so long it would not be Christmas without doing it. It's just part of Christmas for us. My children were real small when they started, they deliver for me now. So it's a family thing too, a lot of us have family here doing things," Schwoch said.
A volunteer group of current and retired AT&T employees make and deliver the meals throughout the community.
"Mostly shut-ins, seniors, most of the people on the Meals on Wheels route," said Schwoch.
It's a unique way of spreading Christmas cheer to those who bring the meals, and those who receive them.
"They really wanted to talk to us, and have us come in, and look around. They gave us a plate of cookies. Christmas cookies," said Olivia and Taylor Hoesley, who volunteered for the event.
"We've had people move furniture for them, we've had people who just didn't want you to leave because there are a lot of people that we're the only ones that they see for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Especially if you have a small child with you, they just about kidnap them you know to have something to do," Schwoch said.
And every drop off ends with wishes of a Merry Christmas, and a very blessed New Year.
Judy said they needed 22 turkeys and 125 pounds of potatoes. They also had over 700 cookies for desert.
