REGINA – Souls Harbour Rescue Mission is in need of donations for its upcoming Thanksgiving dinner.

They’re expecting about 500 guests for the annual meal for those who wouldn’t be able to celebrate Thanksgiving otherwise.

They still need turkeys, gravy, cranberry sauce, potatoes, pumpkin pies, sugar, coffee creamer, coffee, juice mix, and 750 “Warm Up For Winter” mugs. An updated list of what’s needed can be found on their website.

Staff in the kitchen say they’ve seen a drop off in donations over the summer, and are still short of their fall food goal in order to feed the approximately 200 people a night who would otherwise go without dinner.

“The need continues all throughout the year,” said Katrina Robinson with Souls Harbour Rescue Mission. “Good nutritious items like meats and vegetables. I know a lot of people are emptying out their gardens right now and that kind of stuff is great to drop on over.”

The food is needed no later than Tuesday October 6th. It can be dropped off at the Souls Harbour Soup Kitchen on 1835 Halifax St. between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
