Turkey Drive

We are accepting turkeys, canned food, and monetary donations in preparation for our annual Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday, November 27 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.  We’re planning to serve over 300 meals to community members in need.  The Thanksgiving dinner will include turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, pie…and all the trimmings.  Approximately 800 turkeys are needed for all of the meals that will be served throughout the holiday season.

Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission, stated “We’re already expecting this to be one of our busiest Thanksgiving seasons ever.  We are seeing an increase in emergency meals with other local, emergency resources drying up due to cutbacks—our numbers will only continue to climb.”

Donations may be dropped off Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Yanonali St. office.
