More than 100 volunteers, in shifts every 15 minutes, prepared, packaged and delivered meals as part of the “Gobbles to Go” program. The mission offers the service every Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.
"We want to provide a good meal that is warm and we want it to be there by lunch time," said executive director Lynn Daniell.
Volunteers cooked 65 turkey and 50 hams for Christmas Eve deliveries.
After the feast was sent out, the mission welcomed hundreds of children for a Christmas Eve toy giveaway.
