Cars were lining up on Arlington Avenue on Tuesday, to pick up their meatballs.

Food, fellowship and fundraising was all happening at Holy Cross Lutheran church and it was all happening through car windows. This was the 13th annual swedish meatball dinner at the church. It’s a drive-up meatball dinner fundraiser so the church can reach out and help others.

Louane Beyer is one of dozens of voluneers that help make the meatball fundraiser happen. She said planning for the event began months ago. “We start in the summertime, and we kind of plan how many meals we want and what do we want on our menu. And then on the Saturday before the event, we make the meatballs. Each meatball is hand-made. Every 20 minutes somebody stirs them, mixes them very carefully. And when you open up that clamshell and you get that aroma of that, it is just fantastic.”

Holy Cross is one of the many area churches that support CHUM, helping to feed and clothe folks in need.

Beyer says they served more than 16-hundred meatballs at Tuesday’s fundraiser. What a delicious way to help others.
