PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Volunteers are being sought to help make some homeless veterans’ Christmas a little brighter.

The Philadelphia Veterans Comfort House (PVCH) is a nonprofit agency near 41st and Baltimore that provides meals, shelter, and support to military veterans in need, all year round.

For Christmas,  PVCH executive director David Kamioner says, something special is planned — and volunteers are needed.

“They would be doing everything from helping us serve meals to giving out presents, to helping us in our lounge, basically serving cookies and hot chocolate and just talking with our vets, and making them know that the public that they have protected for so many years has not forgotten.”

PVCH is looking to fill spots on two shifts on December 25th:  7am to noon, and noon to 5pm.
