Rockford Rescue Mission hosts free Thanksgiving banquet to feed the hungry

ROCKFORD, Ill. - The Rockford Rescue Mission made sure those residents who many not be able to participate in a family dinner tomorrow got to have one anyway.

Volunteers hosted a banquet inside the West State Street headquarters on Wednesday, serving up all the classics, like mashed potatoes and turkey.

"They say one in eight families goes hungry at Thanksgiving time," said Crystal Savage, Director of Development for the Rockford Rescue Mission. "And so, it's awesome to be able to serve our Rockford community and make sure everyone has just a beautiful Thanksgiving meal."

The Rescue Mission says it cooked 32 turkeys for the event.
