"People are struggling economically, emotionally, and mentally. They need a place to feel safe, socialize and get a hot meal. People need people. We do this work so no one will feel alone on the holiday," says Capital City Rescue Mission's Director of Development Susan Jones.
There are dozens of organizations in the Capital Region serving free hot meals for Thanksgiving. They are also looking
for volunteers to help serve those meals, as well as donations. See the list of Community Thanksgiving Dinners here.
