Turkeys needed to feed the community on Thanksgiving Day

Each Thanksgiving Day, the Charlotte Rescue Mission opens its doors to all those seeking food, comfort and hope. The tradition continues as we hope to collect over 100 turkeys during our annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive.

"Our goal is that all those who come to the Mission on Thanksgiving Day receive a hot meal and the hope of a new tomorrow from the troubles they are facing today," says Rev. Tony Marciano, Executive Director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. "We served nearly 1,200 meals last year and we hope to feed even more this Thanksgiving. But we can't do it alone. That's why we need the love and support of the Charlotte community."

The Charlotte Rescue Mission needs turkeys from 15 to 25 pounds each. And they need to be frozen for health and safety reasons. Donations may be dropped off at the Charlotte Rescue Mission located at Cedar and West First Street, diagonally opposite the Panther Practice Fields.
