Salvation Army to host annual Christmas Eve dinner with the help of Milk Bottle restaurant

Salvation Army to host annual Christmas Eve dinner with the help of Milk Bottle restaurant

The Salvation Army will once again host their annual Christmas Eve dinner. Along with the Salvation Army itself, the owners of Spokane's Milk Bottle restaurant, Ed and Kris Ritchie, will play a prominent role at the event.

 

The Ritchie’s, along with Salvation Army staff and other volunteers, give their time and money to put
on the dinner, which is free and open to the public. The dinner will be held on December 24th, and will be served on a first come, first served basis. A Christmas Candlelight Service will take place after the dinner.


The Ritchie family started volunteering at the Salvation Army in 2011, just months after their famous
Milk Bottle restaurant on Garland Avenue nearly burned to the ground. While they were waiting for
their business to re-open, the Ritchie’s helped with both the Salvation Army Food Bank, and around the Salvation Army campus. When they learned of the need for some extra help at the Christmas Eve
Dinner, they stepped up and took on leading roles.
