CASPER, Wyo. (RELEASE) - While Wyoming Rescue Mission provides nourishing meals to hungry people every day, they place extra emphasis on alleviating hunger during the holiday months. WRM is working to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving feast that will be served on Wednesday, November 27th at 11:30am.
State Representatives Joe MacGuire and Patrick Sweeney, along with City Manager Carter Napier and other community members will be joining Wyoming Rescue Mission in serving meals on Wednesday.
“This Thanksgiving, we expect to serve more than 200 meals to homeless guests in our shelters, men and women who are residents in our long-term programs, and families and individuals from the community who are struggling to make ends meet,” said Brad Hopkins, Executive Director. “Time and again, we have seen the difference a meal served with love and compassion can make in the lives of those who are hurting. That’s why we do everything we can to make this day extra special.”
In addition to serving a holiday meal to everyone who comes through their doors, the Mission is also putting together 100 Thanksgiving food boxes to take to local families in our area. Guests of their Discipleship Program will then deliver those boxes to low-income neighborhoods, along with words of encouragement.
The Mission relies on donations from compassionate friends and community partners to make their meals and life-changing programs possible. It costs the Mission $2.15 to provide one meal and the care that comes with it.
Donations can be made online at wyomission.org/donate or sent by mail to Wyoming Rescue Mission at PO Box 2030, Casper, WY 82602.
“Each year I’m humbled and honored by our community’s outpouring of support to ensure no one goes hungry at Thanksgiving,” Hopkins said. “I am confident our friends and supporters will give generously once again to bless our hungry, hurting neighbors.”
