Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer stopped by the mission and shared his support, greeting many of our clients and volunteers, wishing them a happy Thanksgiving. This picture below shows Mayor Fischer with Nina Moseley(left) and Linda Stith, Hotel Louisville's General Manager.
Former Jefferson County Judge/Executive Rebecca Jackson, her husband Ralph and volunteers from Mercy Academy volunteered to run the KID'S ZONE, a temporary holiday play area for children whose parents are staying at the mission.
Sullivan University Systems donated over half of the food for Wayside Christian Mission's Annual Thanksgiving Day meals. Sullivan is partnering with Wayside by providing program support and developing educational opportunities for clients and staff in a number of areas, including hospitality, culinary arts, accounting, early childhood education, renovations, banquet development, CPR training and health education. The school's nationally recognized culinary arts program prepared a number of sheet cakes for the day and were responsible for the donation of 70 turkeys, rolls and stuffing. Below Hazel Sullivan started volunteering at 6 AM and worked most of the day. THANKS SULLIVAN!
Volunteers and staff worked through the night smoking turkeys and cooking "chitlins". Their efforts are paying off at this moment as our residents are being served the traditional Thanksgiving sides, plus barbecued pork, "chitlins", and smoked and oven cooked turkeys.
