LAWRENCEVILLE — Christmas is a time for families to sit around a tree opening presents, while enjoying time spent with one another.
However, Christmas time also brings about loneliness for many who have nobody with whom to spend the holidays. That wasn't the case Thursday morning at the Quinn House as men gathered together to celebrate Christmas and spend time with their newfound family.
"It's all about family here," said executive director Gene Brinkley. "These men are isolated from their families and without this, they would otherwise spend Christmas alone."
According to their website, the Quinn House is a nonprofit residential program that offers a 40-day drug and alcohol program that helps individuals get back on their feet and re-enter society in a stable and productive way.
