Rescue Mission Serves 300+ on Christmas Day

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. - More than 100 volunteers served the Billings community on Christmas Day at the Montana Rescue Mission.

Around 300 Billings residents ate a warm meal consisting of mainly hot ham, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls and stuffing. A special holiday meal for the underprivileged has been a MRM tradition for more than a half century.

Volunteer Coordinator Rich Lutton said so many people offered to volunteer that they turned some volunteers away -- proof that Billings is a very caring place to live.

"The people just give their time and energy to come down and serve other people," Lutton said. "Even in the midst of a great snow storm, and slippery roads, we still had people out delivering meals, and taking them out to people who really need them.

"It just shows a lot about Billings commitment to the less fortunate."

"They got a pretty good program here," said Billings resident Robert Thomas. "I've lived in other states, and they never have anything like they do have here."

    After a careful review of the evidence and witness testimony, prosecutors concluded the investigation could not conclusively determine who shot whom, or in what order the shots were fired.  Thus, there is no way to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, who actually fired the shot(s) that killed any of the decedents.
