Volunteers Serve Christmas Meals At Nashville Rescue Mission

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Volunteers are helping serve the city's homeless at the Nashville Rescue Mission for Christmas.

Volunteers were at the mission early Christmas morning, getting the food ready for the second day of serving hundreds of meals.

"We're so grateful for the volunteers that come out – the men, the women, the children," said assistant kitchen manager Sven Randlen.

Volunteers come in shifts to help prepare each meal.

"We do breakfast at 6, lunch at 12, and dinner at 5 p.m. We have volunteers rotating shifts, it's just like clockwork. They steady coming in, peeling potatoes, and doing things, helping us getting prepped up for lunch and dinner as well," added Randlen.

Between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, officials estimated they will serve nearly 500 hams as part of more than 4,000 meals. Randlen said they served 573 meals for breakfast, just on Christmas Eve.

It only costs $2.26 to provide a meal to someone in need. To donate, go to http://www.nashvillerescuemission.org/newschannel5.
