Longview Rescue Mission Feeds The Hungry

Helping those less fortunate to have a happy Thanksgiving was the focus of a two day effort by a rescue mission in Longview. The Highway 80 Rescue Mission is in the process of trying to give a traditional Thanksgiving to thousands of needy people.

Hundreds of volunteers are packing Thanksgiving meals and delivering them to the elderly and disabled in our community. The mission is not only packing meals, but also serving Thanksgiving dinners tomorrow as well.

Mission volunteers hope to feed around 2500 people over two days.
