Final push for food donations before Thanksgiving meal service at Coachella Valley Rescue Mission

The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission is set to host its annual Thanksgiving meal service this week, and the community is urged to donate food items that are still needed by the non-profit organization.

"We're looking for pies, dinner rolls, gravy. Just the sides, but really we're hoping for pies because we want to give everybody that Thanksgiving dessert," said Desire Tegge, Development Coordinator at CVRM.

Tegge added that Coachella Valley Rescue Mission will serve about 4,800 meals in the next two days.
