Longview Mission gives Presents and Food to Needy

Some needy people in Longview got an early Christmas dinner and presents, in a special holiday banquet on Wednesday. Dozens of volunteers helped with the Christmas eve banquet at the Highway 80 rescue mission.

Everyone that came in received a special Christmas gift. 300 meals were served there, and another 12-hundred were delivered to homes by volunteers.

Turkeys were also given to the needy as they left the banquet. The mission will also serve Christmas dinner on Christmas night at 6 p.m.
