ROME N.Y.- The Rome Rescue Mission was open for Thanksgiving.

Dozens of people showed up to enjoy a Hot Thanksgiving Meal.

The traditional Turkey, squash, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and squash were on the menu.

Rome Police Chief Kevin Beach was on hand to serve meals to those who attended.

Matt Miller the Rome Rescue Mission’s Executive Director says Thanksgiving is one of the highlights of the year for them.

"It's a time when we are able to meet some new people that have never been here before. It's really a family environment, so for a lot of the families that come here on the holidays it's like coming home. There's a lot of volunteers that do the same thing they come here annually and it's just part of our big family." said Miller.

Around 600 food baskets were donated to the mission that were served Thursday. That’s about 300 meals served.
