 EXPRESS TEL LONG DISTANCE GIVES HOMELESS FREE CHRISTMAS CALLS HOME
 LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Orange County Rescue Mission and First African Methodist Episcopal Church (F.A.M.E.) have joined with Express Tel long distance company for Christmas to wish the homeless happy holidays by treating them to free long-distance telephone calls to anywhere in the United States.
 Express Tel has arranged for telephone lines and telephones to be brought into the Rescue Mission's chapel, 1901 W. Walnut St., where guests can make a free call Sunday, Dec. 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
 On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the homeless can call free from The Allen House, which F.A.M.E. Church operates at 2249 S. Harvard Blvd., Los Angeles. Free long-distance calls there will begin Tuesday, Dec. 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Christmas Day, Wednesday, Dec. 25, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
 "We don't think this has ever been done before," said Greg Lamont, Express Tel sales manager. "But it's a small way that we in the long- distance business can help others for Christmas.
 "If we can make the holiday a bit brighter for these people by putting them in touch with loved ones they haven't talked to in a long time, then we have met our goal," he said.
 More than 400 calls are anticipated.
 "It's donations and gifts such as Express Tel's that really help the homeless during Christmas," said the Rev. Cecil L. Murray of F.A.M.E. Church. "Voluntary efforts by businesses, community and civic organizations are a tremendous support.
 A low-cost alternative, Express Tel is a full-service long distance telephone company, with operators and a full range of discounted long-distance services for those who communicate throughout the world.
