The guest list for dinner will easily number into the thousands.

The Rescue Mission expects to serve about 2,500 on Christmas day, using last year's turnout as a barometer, the agency said in a news release late Monday night.

The meal is provided free of charge and open to the public. Meal serving will begin at 12 p.m. and end at 3 p.m. at the mission's 301 W. Superior St. location. The meal is made possible by donated food items from area individuals and groups, cash donations, and the assistance of more than 175 volunteers.

This year's home-style dinner will consist of oven roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, rolls, green beans, and assorted pies.

For more information about the meal or The Rescue Mission, please contact CEO, Rev. Donovan Coley, at 260-426-7357 ext. 113, or via email at donovan@therescuemission.net.
