Valley Charities Need Donations This Thanksgiving
Valley charities are looking for donations to feed the hungry during the holidays. Nicole Pena of the Phoenix Rescue Mission said they are especially in need of canned foods that can make a meal, like chili or soup, but she said volunteers for the big day itself are not really needed.
“We have a big Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving, and we have plenty of volunteers to serve that. Everybody loves to serve Thanksgiving dinner," Pena said.
But, Pena said if you are willing to get up early, the Mission could really use your help. She said volunteers for the breakfast shift are definitely needed over the next couple months.
