For Utah's homeless and destitute population, Thanksgiving is more simple that it is for most of us.
Chris Croswhite, Executive Director of The Rescue Mission, says they host a full Thanksgiving celebration every year. This year it will be three days early so their homeless friends can have:
o Hot thanksgiving meal
o News Boots
o Flu shots
o Recovery program entrance
o Other referral services
o A pathway off the streets.
Croswhite says in his experience this population seems to have a greater amount of appreciation for what they do have.
