Downtown Rescue Mission requesting turkey donations

drmDowntown Rescue Mission To Give Out 800 Thanksgiving Dinner Boxes This Year

Every year, the Downtown Rescue Mission helps the homeless and families in need during the Thanksgiving holidays.

To serve those families in the community who can’t afford to purchase a traditional Thanksgiving Meal, the Downtown Rescue Mission will prepare boxes filled with items needed to prepare a Thanksgiving Meal, such as a frozen turkey, stuffing, green beans, yams, fruit cocktail, and rolls.  The Mission expects to give out 800 turkey boxes this year to help families in need.  Families must sign up to receive the turkey boxes on Monday, November 7, 2016 and Tuesday, November 8, 2016. The Mission will accept 200 registrations at each session on both days. The sessions are first come-first served and the times are, 9-11 am and 1-3 pm each day.

The turkey boxes will be handed out to those that registered on Monday, November 21, 2016 and Tuesday, November 22, 2016, after a special service in the Chapel.

This year, the Downtown Rescue Mission has an urgent need for 10-12 pound turkey donations.  Turkeys may be packaged fresh or frozen, and can be dropped off at the Mission’s main campus, located at 1400 Evangel Drive, Huntsville, AL 35810.  All turkeys must be donated on or before November 18, 2016.  Monetary donations to be used toward the purchase of turkeys are also greatly appreciated.

The Downtown Rescue Mission provides food, clothing, and shelter to the homeless of northern Alabama and southern Tennessee. For more information on the Downtown Rescue Mission, please visit www.downtownrescuemission.org.
