Christmas is always one of the busiest days of the year at the Community Kitchen in Downtown, Chattanooga. 

On Christmas day, more than a hundred volunteers made the kitchen feel like home for the men and women who do not have one. 

Volunteers served hot meals, accompanied the homeless, and one woman even sang. 

"Singing always lifts the spirits," said Anne Rudd. 

Rudd showed up to the community kitchen unannounced, hoping to bring joy to the Chattanooga homeless. 

"I know that from personal experience it is very hopeful to have a light in the darkness,' Rudd told Channel 3.

120 others also spent their holiday at the Chattanooga Community Kitchen making sure the homeless were taken care of this Christmas. 

"We served around 500 meals, we had a lot of people here helping out," said Jens Christensen, CEO of the Chattanooga Community Kitchen. 

Christensen says today was the most volunteers they have had all year long and that they are always in need of more people to help.
