Thanksgiving Day Feast 2020
November 26, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Kokomo Rescue Mission has offered a Thanksgiving Feast for many years and this year will be no exception; however, in light of the current CDC guidelines and our desire to keep everyone safe, we will be offering the meals as delivery, drive through and Grab & Go only. The event will take place at Grace United Methodist Church at 219 W. Mulberry, Kokomo.
As in years past, those needing a meal may call the Mission at 765-456-3838 to have your meals delivered. We will be accepting calls for delivery meals November 9th – November 25th 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. The meals will be delivered to homes between 10:30 am – noon the day of Thanksgiving.
Drive through and Grab & Go meals will be offered at Grace United Methodist Church from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm on Thanksgiving Day.
We will need many volunteers to successfully provide warm needed meals to our neighbors.
To volunteer and select your position, please call 765-456-3838 ask for a Volunteer Coordinator. To comply with CDC guidelines, you must be registered ahead of the event to volunteer and wear a mask/social distance. We ask that all young children and those not serving, not attend the event.
Delivery Drivers: We need approximately 50 volunteers to arrive on Thanksgiving Day to be able to deliver warm meals to those in our community.
Parking Lot / Traffic Attendants: We need 12 volunteers that are 18 years of age or older to help direct traffic.
Serving Line (place food in containers): We need 14 volunteers per shift that are 15 years of age or older to help serve the food.
Carry-out Assembly (walk the line with containers): We need 25 volunteers per shift that are 10 years of age or older to walk the containers through the serving line to be filled.
Runners (replenish bagged meals at Grab & Go and drive through) We need 14 volunteers per shift that are 10 years of age or older to take meals that are ready for distribution to the two areas distributing the meals.
Clean Up (dishes, sweeping, putting room back together): We need 5 volunteers to help in cleaning up all areas used during the event.
This season more than ever, we want to extend a warm invitation to all who would like a meal. We treasure the opportunity to use this year to encourage our fellow neighbors and remind them that we care and they are not alone.
