The River City Rescue Mission is in need of turkeys to feed homeless and poor people in Vicksburg this Thanksgiving week.

The mission, located at 3705 Washington St., serves three meals a day to people who otherwise would not get a decent meal at all. At every meal, the mission feeds from 80 to 100 people.

“We can’t do it alone,” said mission Director Ernie Hall. “It’s going to take all of us.”

Coming into the Thanksgiving holiday, the mission also prepares food boxes for families that could not put a turkey on the table without them. For Christmas, they also collect toys for children with a parent who is incarcerated.

For more information, please call River City Rescue Mission at 601-636-6602.
