Throughout the day on Thanksgiving, Light of Life Rescue Mission served a traditional Thanksgiving meals at its Great Thanksgiving Banquet sponsored by Oxford Solutions.
In addition to over 1,000 meals served to neighbors in need at the mission on West North Avenue, volunteers delivered around 500 hot meals to residents in 14 local high-rise buildings.
County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl were two of the many volunteers
In addition to the meals, men, women and children who were in need of a coat were able to pick out a warm, donated winter coat. The coats are being donated by 12-year-old Jackson Seabolt. Since 2009, Jackson has held an annual coat drive to give away at Light of Life’s Thanksgiving Day meal.
