This Thanksgiving, the Miami Rescue Mission organization and hundreds of volunteers extend their helping hand to serve plates of hot food to the most needy and helpless people.
The event has been held in the community for 45 years and although this 2020 the pandemic stopped many of the usual plans, today they claim to take all the necessary measures.
Hundreds of needy and homeless people came to the Miami Rescue Mission to spend their Thanksgiving with whom they consider their family. Many not only receive a plate of hot food, but also clothing and the possibility of bathing on site.
Turkey, potatoes and hot vegetables will be the traditional food that dozens of homeless people and families in the Miami area will be able to receive and sit at the table to eat, all thanks to the charitable work of volunteers and those in charge of an event that is already traditional every year.
Alexis Chaviano, manager and volunteer, explains that “we traditionally close the streets in the Wynwood area.” We have an event recognized as a great Thanksgiving feast.
In addition to receiving hot food, many are also welcomed with coffee, bags of clothes, they carry out activities and finally they will be able to leave with a bag of food and essential products.
And for those families that will not be able to arrive in time to receive a plate of food, canned food and water will also be offered that you can collect at the Miami Rescue Mission.
And those in charge assure that they are taking all the security and disinfection measures for protection against COVID-19. This event takes place on Northwest First Avenue and has the mission of providing support to everyone in our community in a family day.
