Tuesday is The Rescue Mission’s annual Christmas dinner. It’s the Mission’s second-largest meal of the year, with Thanksgiving being the largest.
Anyone in need of a meal is welcome on December 25 between the hours of noon and 3 p.m. The Rescue Mission is preparing 3,000 meals, after serving more than 3,000 on Thanksgiving.
On the menu this year is turkey, green beans, stuffing, rolls, assorted cheesecakes, sugar cream pie, and pumpkin pie.
The meal is provided free-of-charge at The Rescue Mission (301 W. Superior Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46802). More than 150 volunteers will prepare meals for carry-out and serve those who come to dine in.
The Rescue Mission’s Christmas meal is made possible by donated food items from area individuals and groups, cash donations, and the assistance of many volunteers.
