The Butte Rescue Mission fed up to 2,000 people with a traditional Thanksgiving feast.
The 12th annual city wide dinner was held at the Maroon Activities Center in Butte today.
It's an opportunity to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving Dinner for those who may not otherwise have one.
It's also a time to gather and see friends and neighbors from the community that you may not otherwise see.
Bev York has been volunteering for the last few years and says she enjoys giving back.
"We're so blessed. We have so much and it's nice to be able to give to people that don't have so much," says York.
This is the second time around for Butte resident Woody Woodbury to enjoy the dinner.
"Last year I came here and I ran into people I haven't seen in 25 years. It's cool. I'm so proud of the Mission for doing this. They do a lot for the community," he says.
The Butte Rescue Mission will hold a Thanksgiving dinner at 1204 E Second Street in Butte from from noon to 5 on Thursday.
