Several volunteers turned out at the Raleigh Rescue Mission this Christmas Eve to help those in need."We've got people coming in and actually delivering them," Raleigh Rescue Mission Executive Director Lynn Daniell said. "It just been a lot of fun and we've got about 70 volunteers this Christmas."

From the assembly line to the homes of people who otherwise may have gone without, Raleigh Rescue Mission's Gobbles to Go program has been a tradition six years in the making.

Nickie Bennerman said Friday it was her second year volunteering to deliver the meals.

"Giving them food is just fun," she said.

The Bennerman's are one of the many who packed their cars to deliver more than 700 meals in Raleigh.

"My kids were doing it because they were getting kind of selfish at one time thinking that Christmas was just about getting gifts and so I wanted them to start doing stuff for other people," Bennerman said.

She said helping those in need has been an inspiration for her family.

"It does mean a lot because they are getting to help other people and they see that there are some people who have less than they have," Bennerman said.
