It's never to early to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Some folks who are down on their luck this holiday season got to sit down and enjoy a full turkey dinner with all the fix'ins Wednesday.

The event is part of the Boise Rescue Mission's yearly Thanksgiving Banquet at the Cathedral of the Rockies.

The 13th Annual Boise Rescue Mission's Thanksgiving Banquets support their mission, which is to serve those most in need.

"This event is just one small example of that because 365 days a year... the rescue mission is open, the meals are served three times a day, the dorms are ready to sleep in," says Rev. Bill Roscoe, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries president and CEO. "And, that's what we're here for and that's why people support the rescue mission."

Volunteers not only helped in the food line dishing up meals but also handed out food boxes and turkeys for people who had signed up for them.

Between both the rescue mission's banquets in Boise and Nampa Wednesday, about 2,500 meals were served.
