Mission Calls for Thanksgiving Volunteers

October 28, 2014

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – The Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission will celebrate its 4th Annual “Feed the Falls” events again this Thanksgiving and Christmas Days. They anticipate delivering up to 1800 traditional holiday dinners to needy individuals, shut-ins and families throughout area neighborhoods.

Roughly 300 volunteers, including members from several WNY area churches, are expected to help prepare and deliver meals throughout Niagara County.

Janet Scott, Project Coordinator tells of one family last year who came back from delivering meals very excited. “They had made a Thanksgiving dinner delivery to an elderly woman and discovered that her Thanksgiving table had already been set with her best holiday decorations, but sadly, just for one person. They felt very thankful, being privileged to spend time with her as they visited and had opportunity to pray with her. It truly brought joy and companionship to her lonely heart that day!”

Executive Director Shaun Smith said, “This is very common; we never know what we’re going to find when our volunteers knock on that door. We need to remember that God calls His people to visit the needy, elderly, and lonely, and to provide help, hope and healing for anyone in need. It’s exactly what the Mission is all about every day. This is truly a great way to connect God’s people with those in great need.”

The Mission will open a special “Meal Hotline” and begin taking calls in early November. If you would like to volunteer, or contribute food or financial support for this year’s “Feed the Falls” event, contact Janet Scott, Project Coordinator via email at, or by calling the Mission at (716) 282-0432.
