Annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner

November 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

This year at the Durham Rescue Mission, we will be hosting our 49th Annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner feeding the homeless, hungry, and needy men, women, and children of the Triangle. This event is held outdoors at the Mission campus located at 1201 East Main Street.

We’re in need of volunteers, turkeys, and new bicycles for this event. If you can volunteer or provide a turkey, please call our office at (919) 688-9641, 5025.

Activities for the day are all free to those attendance!! You will receive  a free hot turkey dinner with all the trimmings, and hot dogs.  PLUS, a bag of groceries will be given to every family to take home and cook for another meal.  In addition, there will be a variety of carnival games with prizes for the children as well as free clothing items given away.

A special ticket drawing will be held at 1:00 PM for a 65” SMART TV, Nintendo Switch, 3 Chrome Book’s, and assorted new bicycle’s for girls and boys.

This event is also a time for the community to come together to provide a hot meal for those who are less fortunate. We will need 425 volunteers to give of their time, to ensure the neediest in our community are not forgotten on this special day. This event has brought together the “have’s” and the “have not’s” for a great meal and time of fellowship. Times are tough, but we all still have much to be thankful for!

Imagine bringing big smiles to the faces of an entire table of hurting and hungry people who are able to enjoy a delicious meal…all because of YOU!
This could be the most rewarding Thanksgiving YOU have ever enjoyed…
