CHICAGO: Members of the Sikh Religious Society, Palatine, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, served hot meals to the needy families on Christmas Day at Salvation Army located at 825 North Christiana Avenue in Chicago. 

Hot traditional meals (turkey, chicken, mashed potatoes, beans, stuffing, bread rolls and apple pie) for over 800 people, donated by the Sikh community, were prepared at the Salvation Army kitchen. Sikhs served the meals to the needy guests with great respect and kindness.

Hardial Singh Deol who has been on this journey to serve meals at Salvation Army since 1992 handed over the donation checks collected from the Sikh community member volunteers present there to serve to Major Nancy Powers of Salvation Army. Sikh community youth volunteers handed out cookies, bagels and cakes to the families after the meal at the exit door.
