PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Local organizations will be serving free Thanksgiving dinners to the public around the Portland area on Nov. 23 and on Thanksgiving Day. All events are open to anyone seeking company or a hot meal.

For those looking to give back during the holiday season, some organizations are also seeking volunteers and additional donations for the events. The Portland Rescue Mission, which is serving its Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 23, says it’s still in need of volunteers to host, serve and bus tables.

“This week we will serve the first indoor Thanksgiving Meal in three years,” Portland Rescue Mission announced on social media. “This is the perfect opportunity to offer the relational care and connection that’s been missing throughout the pandemic.”
