After all of our favorite events were canceled or had to be virtual last year, it is refreshing to plan for an annual way to help the community and our health. Your Evansville Rescue Mission will help over 19,000 families right here in the Tri-State enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. Fundraising events like the Drumstick Dash 5k fund those meals and give people hope.

Too many local families will have a hard time finding things to be thankful for this holiday season.

It feels pretty sad to read that doesn't it? It feels sad writing it, that's for sure. Our friends at the Evansville Rescue Mission can help put hope and love back into the hearts of individuals that are worried about not having a Thanksgiving meal.
