Volunteer groups spent Christmas day helping feed those in need at the Opportunity Center for the Homeless in Central El Paso.

The center was busy serving more than a hundred meals before dinner from food donated by several area church groups.

"You can see their happy faces," said Enrique Ramos, with the center. "They enjoy stuff like this and they say thank you and god bless you."
People have enjoyed tamales, spaghetti and a variety of other meals.

The center had a more traditional Christmas dinner with turkey on Thursday.

Those in need have also received hygiene supplies as well as socks and other items.

The shelter is open to men and women and collects donations year-round.
