EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Evansville's Rescue Mission is giving away hundreds of Thanksgiving baskets.

Each basket is filled with a turkey, potatoes, and canned goods.

This year, the rescue mission will help more than twelve hundred families as well as residents at Buckner Towers, John F. Kennedy Towers and Liberty Terrace Apartments.

"The people that come to this food box give away, really they need this box or they wouldn't stand in line all this time. So we are so thrilled to be able to offer it to them, to show them that we care about them, that we love them, that they are important to us, and that they are important to our community."

The Gobbler Gathering lasts until 8:00 Tuesday at the Evansville Rescue Mission in Downtown Evansville.
