CALDWELL, Idaho — Thanks to a local woman in Caldwell, members of the community who are lonely, veterans, food insecure, homeless, or working on Christmas Eve are welcome to a home-made meal "on the house" at the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall.

Rebecca "Becky" Aldrich, owner of the Caldwell Airport Cafe was given an anonymous $2,000 donation this year to host her second annual Christmas Eve dinner. Last year, a robbery at the cafe devastated Rebecca, but when members of the Caldwell community began donating goods, Rebecca thanked everyone for their kind acts with a Christmas dinner. After seeing how this dinner brought everyone together, she had hoped to host another but made no plans to do so. That is, until money was donated, the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall offered a venue and Idaho Central Credit Union donated flatware and other dinner "must-haves".

"You know I just absolutely love helping people in any type of way and for somebody to want me to host and donate to provide something like this is just incredible." Rebecca and Terry Haldwell, Chairman of Caldwell's Veterans Council urge anyone in the area to stop by.

If you'd like more information on the dinner or would like to contact Becky with any questions directly you can call her at (208)-459-4428 or becky.aldrich.88@gmail.com
