BOSTON (WHDH) — There was singing and kind words over a meal at a Christmas party at the Pine Street Inn in Boston, a homeless shelter that serves about 1,000 holiday meals to townspeople.
“It’s awful to be homeless all the time, but this time of year is the hardest,” said Lyndia Downie, President of the Pine Street Inn. “All the messages are about going home and Christmas and family and here, that’s not what you have and these people really feel it.”
Cardinal Sean O’Malley also attended the event, which featured meals and volunteers for the first time since the pandemic.
