Westport church opens doors to feed anyone in need

For more than 30 years, Westport?s Saugatuck Congregational Church has opened its doors on Christmas Day for anyone looking for good food and good company and this year was no different.

Anyone who stopped in for a bite was offered turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and other Christmas meal staples.

This year, the guests included Hector Lopez, who lives in a nearby homeless shelter and Patty and Dusty Clark and who were married in the church 51 years ago. The couple says the lunch is an opportunity to get together with friendly folks and have a good time.

All of the leftovers are donated to local homeless shelters and soup kitchens.
