WabiSabi is seeking volunteers to help with the annual Christmas Day meal. The Christmas meal is provided through the Wabi Winter Meals program.

Last year, 100 volunteers helped prepare and serve 500 meals. 

“It is a wonderful opportunity for the individuals, nonprofits and businesses of Moab to unite in sustaining area residents and the community at large,” WabiSabi officials said in a news release. “This meal is more than a gesture to help people through lean economic times; it is about creating a sense of community. We invite people of all ages and backgrounds to share in this essential bond of community, gratitude and sharing.”  

The group cannot accept food donations from individuals because all items in the meal must be prepared in a commercial kitchen. Financial contributions or gift certificates to local grocers for the event may be mailed to WabiSabi, 1030 Bowling Alley Lane #9, Moab, UT 84532.

WabiSabi needs volunteers to help with meal setup, serving and cleanup. Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to contact Nara Williams at 259-2553 or vista@wabisabimoab.org.
