Help Fill Every Table For Thanksgiving, Holidays

By Tori Mason

DENVER (CBS4)– Every Thanksgiving, the Denver Rescue Mission sets a goal to collect 15,000 turkeys for people in need.

Safeway kicked off this year’s drive off with a huge donation. Volunteers helped load more than 400 turkeys into the Rescue Mission freezer Monday morning.

With their donation, Safeway is hoping to inspire more businesses to step up and give so every table can have a turkey this holiday season.

The Denver Rescue Mission partners with churches, schools and non-profits to bring meals to people in need, but they could still use some help from the public.
