He turned the car off and got out and pocketed his keys after he locked it. This wasn't the first time that he had been here. Whenever he had the time he tried to make sure that he came here. There were people less fortunate than him and he liked to help out at the kitchen. He knew that he would have to go, but he didn't want to go now. He had sent Miss Parker and crew a false lead and knew he had a little bit more time until he had to leave.

"Hello, Jarod. I'm so glad that you could make it."

"Thank you."

"You are too kind Jarod."

Jarod made his way towards the kitchen and helped with making the meal and then when it was done took it out to help serve it. When everyone was served he took the empty pots and pans and started washing them. He then helped with serving the desserts and after that was done he washed the empty serving trays. After that he helped with the bags that the people were allowed to take home for that day. In a couple of weeks it would be Christmas and he hopefully help with giving the people gift bags that contained either turkeys, or hams and all the things that would go with the meal. The day before they would start filling them up and then the next day they would hand them out.

As the day wound down he helped with the dishes that were left over and putting away the chairs and tables. Then he helped mop up the floor.

A couple of weeks later he was helping put stuffing, potatoes, carrots, celery and other things in the bags and tomorrow they would hand them out. The Turkeys and Hams were in the refrigerator and would stay there until tomorrow.

The next day he was there bright and early and was helping hand the bags out. He smiled at the people and wished them a Merry Christmas.

When it was over he said goodbye to everyone and they wished him a Merry Christmas and he wished the same for them. He drove home and ordered a pizza because he was hungry. The kitchen was closed next week, but he hoped to be back again after that.

He was happy that he could help people anyway he could and he liked to help those that were less fortunate than he was.

The End
