EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Thanksgiving is just two months away and the Evansville Rescue Mission is asking for your help.

The Rescue Mission will be hosting its 92nd annual 'Gobbler Gathering' starting at 10:00 a.m. on November 25.

Food baskets will be given away to thousands of families in need.

People in need can sign up to receive a basket from October 13 and through October 17. Proof of income and ID are required.

Donations of cash or food items are needed.  You can also volunteer to help with the 'Gobbler Gathering'.

Then there's the third-annual Drumstick Dash which takes place on November 22.

It costs $20 to enter the 8 run/walk or there's a one-mile option.  The money raised helps pay for the thanksgiving baskets.

If you'd like to donate, volunteer, or register for the Drumstick Dash, go to Evansvillerescuemission.org
