SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission has prepared food for 1,300 people this Thanksgiving.

Volunteers from Grawood Baptist Church prepared food and packed plates to be delivered to the homeless community and downtown neighbors.

Meals are set to have all the fixings and a delicious dessert.

Officials with the mission say they are thankful for their donors for helping them continue to serve the homeless this holiday season.

“We are thankful to be alive. It’s raining outside but we are thankful for the rain. We are just thankful that we have the opportunity. We’ve got great donors, we got great support here in Shreveport and we just thank God that is with us today and that he has allowed this to be provided for our guests,” said Larry Otwell, executive director and lead pastor at the mission.
