Hope Ministries looking for Thanksgiving volunteers


Hope Ministries is looking for a few good volunteers this Thanksgiving.

They need people to help deliver 600 meals to disadvantaged families and serve residents at their South Bend facility on Thanksgiving Day.

Hope officials say thanks to the struggling economy, they're seeing more full families coming in this year. They say enjoying a holiday meal together is an experience every family should have.

"They get to come together and just be able to eat a meal with family, with people that really care about them," said volunteer coordinator Emily Jensen. "I think it's just a great boost of morale and a great way to spend the holiday."

They're also looking for food donations. They need all the Thanksgiving staples, like turkeys, cranberry sauce and ready-to-serve dinner rolls.

If you'd like to volunteer or make a food donation, call Emily Jensen at 574-235-4150, extension 222.
