The Arcata House Partnership sends along word that they’ll be serving hot meals to people in need of one every afternoon this week (except Wednesday). Want to help? They could use some.

Meals will be served at the Arcata House Annex, down by the transit center, from noon to 3 p.m.

Arcata House says:

We will be serving out of the back of our 9th Street annex, from 12 to 3 p.m. on Monday (12/23), Tuesday (12/24), Thursday (12/26) and Friday (12/27).

Volunteers for cooking and cleanup would be greatly appreciated. Donations of cider and sweets (esp. cinnamon sticks) are also welcome. In addition, clients are in need of blankets and socks for the holiday season so AHP will gladly receive clothing contributions as well. To contact AHP about volunteering and/or donating, call (707) 298-7610 or email
