Longview Rescue Mission Offers Holiday Food And Toys

  Today and tomorrow, volunteers at highway 80's "rescue mission" in Longview are treating hundreds of people to traditional holiday dinners. The mission workers will serve over 1700 meals to needy people in the area. Through donations from the community, thousands of dollars in gifts will be given to those in need this holiday season.

  "We called on the community and they responded we were wondering where we were going to get all of these toys, and the community just really responded" said mission director Tony Chung.

  Workers expect that they will serve over 6-thousand meals and give away 42-hundred gifts during the month of December.
