Crossroads Rescue Mission hosts fall banquet
Tuesday night is the night the Crossroads Mission Rescue is going to have their big annual fall banquet. It's going to be happening at 6:00 pm Tuesday evening at the Hastings Convention Center. Kyle Bruna spoke with News 5 to give us the details.
Kyle Bruna: Yes, we are very excited. We put a lot of work into it so we're glad that it's here. A lot planned; a lot of people attending. We're hoping to raise a lot of money to fund Crossroads throughout the year. So it's a big event. We're ready to roll at 6:00 pm tonight.
Amy West: Can people still get tickets to this?
Kyle: We have a couple tables left so if they really want to they can definitely call down at Crossroads. And, also, if they just want to give to to the event they can go online and donate to the Harvesting Hope Banquet still.
Amy: All you have to do is click on the icon that's on your webpage.
Kyle: Yep, it's on the main page at CrossroadsMission.com and that will lead them right where they need to be.
Amy: Fantastic. And you, also, at Crossroads are gearing up for a big Thanksgiving meal. Don't worry, if you want to help out with the Salvation Army you can do that and then go over to Crossroads. It's going to be in the evening, correct?
Kyle: Yes, from 4:00 to 7:00 in the evening. We're planning to serve over 200 people that evening which is just amazing. So we definitely need a lot of people to help prep the meal. We have the turkeys. We definitely need some, maybe, green beans, potatoes, yams, stuff like that to go on the side and also the volunteers to help serve that evening.
Amy: Those traditional Thanksgiving meals and let's talk about it because it feels like we're asking a lot of people right now, specifically this time of year for volunteers and to get some funds. How great is this need? How important is it for people to give and volunteer?
Kyle: Not only does it help the people around you, it's so fulfilling when you're there and you get to see these people first hand and you really realize how much of a need there is. So often that you can just put it aside as well someone else can help. You know it's there, but it doesn't have that significant impact as when you're there in front of it. You really see it, you feel it, and you understand. It's just good for both sides.
