BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Bluefield Union Mission served up meals once again this week for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Starting in 1931, and for the next ninety thanksgivings, the bluefield union mission has made sure those needing a hot meal got one.

Board members and volunteers prepared and distributed nearly three hundred hot meals that included turkey, stuffing, ham, green beans, gravy, rolls, and other holiday staples in a pick-up and take home package.

“This is an opportunity for us to serve the people who need help,” said volunteer and Mercer County commissioner, Bill Archer. “I’m glad we’re able to do it especially now that grocery prices are pretty high, and it’s difficult to buy a thanksgiving dinner so you know its good to have this help.”

If you would like to donate funds or your time visit the Bluefild Union Mission at 2203 Bluefield Avenue in Bluefield, West Virginia.

“We do the best we can you know--everybody needs a little help every once in a while, but through it all God is good,” said volunteer Al Hancock
