CASPER, Wyo. — Thanksgiving is on Thursday, but the Wyoming Rescue Mission plans to start their festivities a day early.
They’ll be offering a traditional Thanksgiving feast to homeless people in the community at 11:30 am Wednesday, Nov. 27.
“This Thanksgiving, we expect to serve more than 200 meals to homeless guests in our shelters, men and women who are residents in our long-term programs, and families and individuals from the community who are struggling to make ends meet,” said Executive Director Brad Hopkins.

“Time and again, we have seen the difference a meal served with love and compassion can make in the lives of those who are hurting. That’s why we do everything we can to make this day extra special.”
State Representative Joe MacGuire and Casper City Manager Carter Napier will help serve meals on Wednesday along with other members of the community.
Wyoming Rescue Mission Discipleship Program guests also delivered 100 Thanksgiving food boxes to families in low-income neighborhoods this year.
They say that donations make the work they do possible.
“It costs the Mission $2.15 to provide one meal and the care that comes with it,” the missions says. “Donations can be made online at wyomission.org/donate or sent by mail to Wyoming Rescue Mission at PO Box 2030, Casper, WY 82602.”
