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."

    Rivers are unpredictable. They can flow nice and slowly or they can rush very rapidly. They can swell and run swiftly with high water levels or even change direction, depending on Mother Nature. The girls soccer team from Rocky Mountain College had to learn that the hard way.
