Families knock on doors delivering meals

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of people went knocking on doors this morning delivering not only smiles, but Thanksgiving meals. Nearly 50 volunteers helped Montana Rescue Mission deliver over 300 meals to families.

Happy Turkey Day everyone, I'm here with my new friends Jim and Jolyn. They're volunteering some of their time to deliver meals to help give some Billings families a great Thanksgiving.

"It's our little way of giving back to give back to the community that's given so much to us," Jolyn Colvin said.

It's Jim and Jolyn Colvin's first year helping Montana Rescue Mission deliver Thanksgiving meals.

"Every little bit we can do makes a big difference at the end of the day," she said.

The Colvin family showed up to MRM with two plastic tubs, their car and giving hearts ready to serve 11 families, meals with all of the Thanksgiving fixings.

"11 meals to brighten someone's day makes you feel pretty great at the end of the day. I mean all we're doing is taking 11 meals and so some people that might not be a lot but it makes a huge difference to some families," she said.

MRM takes over the Meals on Wheels Program every Thanksgiving and delivers to senior citizens and families that call in to request a dinner.
