Mama’s Diner gives away a room full of gifts during Christmas Bash
BENTON CITY, Wash. — Mama’s Diner hosted their Second Annual Christmas Bash Thursday, offering a free turkey dinner and gifts for all of the kids.
Santa Claus joined in on the fun this year, meeting every child and surprising them with a wrapped gift and stuffed stocking. Adults were able to enter a raffle for gifts as well. The amount of donations filled an entire room.
Owner, Mama Lori, considers the community her family and her favorite part of giving back is getting to see the smiles on children’s faces.
“So many kids will not have a Christmas and sometimes this is all they’re going to get. That’s why we do it, it’s for that smile, that happiness,” said Mama Lori.
New this year, Mama Lori granted Christmas Wishes for four children, surprising them with new bikes that they’ll get to open with their families on Christmas Day.
