A rescue mission that has helped the poor in the United States for 131 years said it expects to serve the largest number of meals this Thanksgiving.
As many as 7,800 meals will be served at The Bowery Mission in New York City on Thursday. Although this is a record-breaking number, Bowery said it has enough food and does not expect to turn anyone away.
“You know, New Yorkers are the most generous people in the country, we think,” said Ed Morgan, president and CEO of The Bowery Mission, to The Christian Post. “We’re doing OK and will give our Thanksgiving guests exactly what they need.”
