Crossroad’s hosted day two of Thanksgiving

The Crossroads Mission hosted day two of the three days of Thanksgiving celebration. They do this every year, its free and open to the public.
For the last 11 years, the Mission delivers 500 meals to those who may not have gotten a holiday supper without their help.
The Mission also sends meals to the veterans at the American Legion post 19.
Crossroad’s Community Affairs Director Barbara Rochestor says the only way they are able to pull off such a large event is with the community’s support.
Rochestor said, “The care is there, the donations are there from all the agencies. 10 years ago we started home delivered meals so we have them for the frail elderly. We get referrals from the adult protective services and Catholic Community Services for the 3 days of Thanksgiving and 3 days of Christmas.”
Rochestor said they couldn’t have done it without the support of the volunteers coming in, cooking, cleaning and making pies. They are planning on serving up to 150 meals Wednesday night for dinner.
