RUSHVILLE — Churches throughout Rush County come together each year to prepare and delivery a Thanksgiving Dinner to residents who are shut-ins, have low or fixed incomes or otherwise might not get a Thanksgiving dinner.

Someone will need to be home between 4 and 6 p.m. to receive the dinner delivery on Wednesday.

Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to noon today, Nov. 20, and from 9 a.m. on through delivery Wednesday, Nov. 21 to help prepare this special Thanksgiving meal.

Drivers to deliver the more than 600 meals are needed by 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. There is a real need for additional drivers this year.

If you are able to help by cooking, driving or even through making a donation, you are urged to call or show up at Main Street Christian Church. Meals are not served at the church, so please call ahead to arrange delivery. Donations of pumpkin pies and rolls are also being sought.

The meal includes turkey, dressing, green beans, sweet potatoes, a roll and pie.

Those in need can call Main Street Christian Church between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at 932-2997 to request the delivery of this free meal with a name, address, directions to the home and the number of meals needed, if they have not already done so.
