Frederick Rescue Mission Needs Turkeys

I got this from FrederickMarylandOnline:

Fredrick Rescue Mission does an Annual Turkey Drive to help give needy families a Thanksgiving dinner. There is much demand this year and they will have to turn some families away. Here is some more details about the drive and how you can help …

Annual Turkey Drive distribution will be held this Saturday, November 22 from 2-4 pm. So far, over 200 needy families and individuals have signed up to receive a Thanksgiving food box, but we've had to turn many people away for lack of supplies. If you have a few extra dollars to put towards these needs, we would be so grateful, as would that family who will be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal!

Note: the homeless and under employed will still make very good use of your thoughtful donation even if you don't get it to the Rescue Mission until AFTER Thanksgiving!!!

Every year, the under employed go to both the Rescue Mission and the Frederick Community Action Agency in search of a Holiday turkey only to discover that they got there too late!

So don't think that "I didn't get to get there and now it's too late" because it's NOT too late... even if it's the first week in December and you're just now getting around to it.

For more information, contact Guy Mutchler at or

Here's what we put in each box:

Boxed stuffing
Instant Mashed Potatoes
3 cans corn
3 cans green beans
2 cans cranberry sauce
2 cans poultry gravy
Thanks for the tip Kim and Don.
