UPDATE (11/11): While there’s still time to reserve your turkey box for Thanksgiving, the Downtown Rescue Mission says they only have 170 turkey boxes left, due to the amount of people signing up Monday, Nov. 11. The remaining boxes will be reserved for people on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Mission says those boxes will likely be claimed in the morning sign-up period (10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.), and they don’t anticipate having their afternoon sign-up period (1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.).
If you’re in need of a little extra assistance this Thanksgiving, the Downtown Rescue Mission is here to help.
The Downtown Rescue Mission is giving away 800 Turkey Boxes for those who may not have the means to provide a Thanksgiving meal for their families. The boxes contain a turkey and all the fixings to cook a full Thanksgiving meal for a family of 4-6 and will be given out the week of Thanksgiving.
Sign-ups are Monday, Nov. 11 and Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Families must sign up at the Mission during these times to receive a Turkey Box. You will need a state-issued ID to sign up. The Downtown Rescue Mission is located at 1400 Evangel Drive, Huntsville, AL 35816.
