The November 18 dinner took place at North Congregational Church in Farmington Hills. The church supported S.O.U.L. with the venue, as well as a food drive. Hundreds of people donated items for “give-away” tables, which offered families an opportunity to choose items they need, as well as holiday gifts for those they love.

In addition to music provided by Alvorada (Geoffrey Esty and Jade Fairfax), children made holiday cards for seniors, and families submitted their holiday wish lists. S.O.U.L. reaches out to its supporters to help make those wishes come true.

The Holiday Party, held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at North Congregational Church, will include cookies and cocoa, good music, a visit for the children with Santa, warmth and kindness. Call 248-318-6691 to learn more.

Established in 2003, S.O.U.L. is a volunteer-based organization. To learn more or donate, visit
