COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - The Valley Rescue Mission in Columbus prepares over 800 meals on Thanksgiving Day.

These meals are served to men, women, and children who come to the mission for The Great Thanksgiving Banquet. The meals are also served to those in the Chattahoochee Valley who are shut in.

This year, the Valley Rescue Mission’s Thanksgiving will look different because of COVID-19. Weather permitting, the goal this year is to feed the community in the parking lot along with a church service on Thanksgiving Day.

The Valley Rescue Mission plans to exercise the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines and is asking individuals who are attending to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing for everyone’s safety.
