The Good Neighbours' Club has been providing services for men facing issues of homelessness, poverty, unemployment, and mental and physical illness since 1933. Every single day of the year the club provides meals for these men, as well as clothing, showers, laundry, mail and phone services, and recreational and health services.

The gifts wrapped by Caterina and her father Bruno Scorsone, the Executive Director at The Club, will be distributed to the men on Christmas Day as they enjoy a turkey lunch with all the fixings. The club is bringing joy to men at a time that can be very difficult for those without a family or home of their own.
