Peduto has been involved with the mission for over 20 years and has made serving pre-Christmas meals a holiday tradition.

"A lot of people who don't have a home, and there's a lot of ways we can help,” Peduto said. “Just by being here helps a little bit and by recognizing the spirit of the holiday is in helping others."

James Kirkland, a patron of Light of Life, looks forward the annual tradition.

“It feels like home,” Kirkland said.
