PORTLAND -- Portland's YWCA is holding the 19th annual Potluck in the Park on Christmas Day.

The holiday dinner is a free meal open to anyone in need.

An estimated 1,500 people will line up tomorrow for the full turkey dinner, gifts, photos with Santa and live jazz.

The volunteer sheet to serve food is full -- but organizers said they still need baked goods like pies, cakes, cookies and pastries.  They also need more hot cocoa mix or coffee.

People interested in donating can drop off the items at the YWCA on Southwest 10th downtown until 6 p.m. Monday or after 9 a.m. Tuesday.
