Anyone looking for a place to spend Christmas Eve won't have to spend it alone.  

The La Crosse Salvation Army's annual Christmas Eve dinner is open to the public. 

Organizers say there is plenty of food to go around. Volunteers will be serving ham, potatoes and dessert. Appetizers will be served at 3:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 4:30 p.m. 

In the spirit of the giving, organizers say it's never too late to help those in need, especially after the holidays.               

"Usually the couple months leading up to Christmas almost everyday people are dropping off extra toys. or blankets or personal hygiene items, and so we really appreciate that but don't forget it when it comes February again because by February we will have used up all these supplies,” said Julie Nelson, public relations and development director for the Salvation Army.
