Many Chicago-area residents spent part of their day spreading some Christmas joy.

For many of them, Christmas was a day to give back.

Members of St. Sabina Catholic Church in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood invited 500 guests to dine and celebrate the holiday. Church volunteers served food to homeless men, women and children.

Volunteers with The Christmas Cheer Foundation also got lots of love as they went door-to-door to deliver Christmas dinners to 15,000 people.

Volunteers meeting at Dominican University in west suburban River Forest also gathered to make meals for those in need.

And in Berwyn, more than a dozen recruits from Great Lakes Naval Station were treated to a meal with Gov Quinn and Santa himself.
