Meet Your Homeless Neighbor

This year the Men’s Gospel Rescue Mission in Grants Pass has a theme for Thanksgiving Day: “Meet Your Homeless Neighbor.”

The organization’s goal is to have residents at the mission meet and get to know those in the community. Staff members are encouraging families and anyone else interested, to come by the mission.

“They can meet people, they can realize. The community can realize they’re not just homeless guys. They’re humans. They’re humans with needs just like we have,” Head Chef Steve Adams.

Staff members started to prep all the food for thanksgiving since last week. The mission plans to serve people from 12 p.m. till 2 p.m. Thursday.
