Quarters For Christmas will be held this Saturday at the Dartmouth Mall.

Proceeds from the event will go towards Rise Up for Homes and their efforts to establish establish emergency overflow and day shelters for extreme weather conditions.

This is an issue that's very important to both The Rev. David Lima, Executive Minister of the Inter-Church Council of Greater New Bedford, and Peter Muise, President and CEO of First Citizens' Federal Credit Union.
