The Rescue Mission preparing to serve over 2,500 carry-out meals for this year’s Christmas meal
Where: 404 E. Washington Blvd.
When: Thursday, December 17, 2020 from 12:00 noon – 3:00 PM
Fort Wayne Indiana (December 17, 2020) – The Rescue Mission will serve its second largest holiday meal on Thursday, December 24th between the hours of 12 noon and 3 PM at the 404 E. Washington Blvd. location. The meal is free and open to all members of the community.
Last Christmas, more than 2,500 meals were served to the homeless and working poor. That number is expected to increase this holiday season with the impact of COVID-19. For the safety of the community, this year’s Christmas meal will be served as a carry-out only (limit of four meals per individual).
“For most of us, Christmas is a time for celebrating. But for many of the poor and homeless in our community, Christmas is just another day without food or shelter,” said The Rescue Mission’s CEO/Senior Pastor, Rev. Donovan Coley. “A simple meal can provide warmth and comfort to someone experiencing hunger or a homeless crisis”
Free daily meals are available to the community, including holidays. The Rescue Mission’s free community meal service is made possible through the generosity of area organizations, individual donors and volunteers.
