The Denver Rescue Mission said it needs at least 2,000 more turkeys to meet its goal of 6,000 by Thanksgiving Day.
The Mission provides a free meal to homeless and poor.
A representative said, the Mission will use 1,250 turkeys on Tuesday at the Thanksgiving Banquet-in-a-Box food box distribution for working poor families and for 1,000 meals on Wednesday at the Great Thanksgiving Banquet.
If the Mission is able to get enough donations, they will distribute turkeys at smaller agencies and churches around the metro Denver area.
Turkeys should be frozen and weigh 12 pounds or more.
Please drop off turkeys by Wednesday at the Denver Rescue Mission Lawrence Street Shelter located at 1130 Park Ave. West, Denver.
Turkeys will be accepted at this location any time of the day.
Since 1892, the Denver Rescue Mission has served the needs of homeless and poor men, women, and children through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional and permanent housing, and community outreach.
