Bridgeport Rescue Mission may need a miracle to pull them through the holidays
For the first time ever, Thanksgiving may be different at the Bridgeport Rescue Mission. Directors at the mission say they're dealing with financial problems because of the $40,000 they had to pay the city to cover a lean on the property. Food donations are also down due to the economy, and the mission is concerned about having enough supplies for the holiday. Usually during this time of year the food pantry shelves are full. The mission says without their help, there will be 600-700 people in the mobile soup kitchens that won't have a Thanksgiving dinner.If you'd like to help with donations for the mission, call 203-333-4087.
