Kelowna's Gospel Mission is once again preparing to share a day of gratitude with a Thanksgiving dinner.
Cooks at the Gospel Mission are expecting to serve close to 700 meals and are preparing a feast that includes the following:
- 45 turkeys
- 16 hams
- 600 lbs of potatoes
- 40 lbs of mixed vegetables
- 60 litres of gravy
- and a large amount of stuffing!
"At this time of year when families gather together for Thanksgiving it is a real privilege to be able to provide a 'family experience' for those who otherwise would not have one," says Gospel Mission Executive Director Randy Benson,
"Thank you to the good people of Kelowna whose generosity helps to make this event possible."
Kelowna's Gospel Mission serves on average 400 meals everyday to the homeless and working poor in and around Kelowna, and they invite anyone, regardless of circumstances, to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with them.
Just like private family gatherings, guests enjoying Thanksgiving at Kelowna's Gospel Mission are encouraged to stay and visit with their friends and loved ones as long as they'd like.
