The mission hopes to collect 300 turkeys and 150 hams for homeless men, women and children who will be attending the Thanksgiving drive-thru and Christmas community dinner. Thanksgiving is November 26.
If you would like to help, you can drop off a turkey or ham at the mission building at 1201 E. Main St. in Durham or at the 507 E. Knox St. location.
