Pat Swanson, Lawrence, looked like a walking Christmas tree for a while Sunday morning as he carried garland to hang from the light posts along Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence. Volunteers from Just Food spent a couple of hours volunteering to hang garland in exchange for being adopted by Downtown Lawrence, Inc. as its holiday charity. Downtown Lawrence donated $1,500 to the charity, which will fund about 7,500 meals. Food donation bins will also be placed around downtown Lawrence from Thanksgiving until Christmas and downtown shops will collect monetary donations during that time. Just Food estimates that every dollar donated will create five meals and has a goal of getting $5,000 in donations this holiday season.
