The Montana Rescue Mission looks for volunteers and donations this Christmas

Posted: Updated:

The Montana Rescue Mission is looking for volunteers to help serve and deliver Christmas meals.

The mission is looking for volunteers and accepting donations of ham, turkey or trimmings. Everything the Montana Rescue Mission serves for Christmas is donated.

"We just want to bring a little bit of joy and a little bit of laughter back into their lives," says MRM Director, Denise Smith. "That's why it's so important... to provide them with something they wouldn't have otherwise received."

The shelter is looking for 40 drivers for Christmas meals with a total of 100 volunteers. At this year's Thanksgiving meal, the shelter had 80 volunteers, including 20 drivers.  Each driver delivered 14-16 meals.

Smith says they're always in need of gifts for teenagers such as toys, coats, and pajama pants (especially for teen boys.)

You can donate Christmas gifts to the Montana Rescue Mission at the Spirit of Giving Friday, December 2. We are accepting donations at the Heights Albertson's from 6 to 9 a.m., Laurel Ford from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Bottles and Shots from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and at the KULR-8 Studios from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
