It's not too early to donate a Thanksgiving turkey | Community Spirit
COLUMBUS, GA - It's not quite Halloween yet, but the Valley Rescue Mission is thinking ahead to Thanksgiving and they're asking you to do the same.
They need hams and turkeys to serve for Thanksgiving dinner each year. The Valley Rescue Mission serves meals in its dining hall to the homeless and less fortunate, and delivers meals to the elderly and shut-ins in the Chattachoochee Valley.
If you can't donate food, they also need people to donate their time. Volunteers are needed to assist in serving the meal, which takes place outdoors under a large tent on the grounds.
The Mission anticipates serving approximately 800 meals (in house and by delivery to the elderly, disabled and shut-ins) at Valley Rescue Mission this year. The complete meal includes ham and turkey, cornbread dressing, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, rolls, coffee, tea and assorted desserts.
If you have a ham or turkey or other holiday meal food items you can donate please bring them to Valley Rescue Mission, 2903 Second Avenue, Columbus, GA.
