Thanksgiving in Style

Fort Collins Rescue Mission....

During the Holidays we often think of how lucky we are to have warm, inviting homes surrounded by loved ones.  It is also a time to reflect upon those that are less fortunate.  This Thanksgiving Holiday I did something that I've always wanted to do but never felt the courage.  I volunteered to feed the homeless and those in need at the Fort Collins Rescue Mission.  It was a humbling experience and I know I will do it again!

Fort Collins Rescue MissionFate would have it that there was only ONE volunteer spot left when I volunteered to help feed those in need at the Fort Collins Rescue MissionThe Volunteers over the Thanksgiving Holiday. This opportunity had been weighing on my heart for weeks and I finally signed up - just in time!  This organization opened its doors in 2012 to continue their more than 20-year history of serving Northern Colorado.  So many volunteers helped to make this time of year a comforting experience for those in need.  The meals were prepared when I arrived... Turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables and desserts were plentiful thanks to the Rescue Mission volunteers as well as members of the community who took the time and effort to donate.
