COLORADO SPRINGS — The Springs Rescue Mission held its annual Thanksgiving dinner and health fair Wednesday.

Hundreds of less fortunate folks took part at the City Auditorium.

It's much more than a meal for the homeless and others who need help.

"Thanksgiving is such an important season for us, because its a chance for us to be thankful for all the things we've been given and so we are kinda neighbors helping neighbors and so it gives us the chance to bridge the gap between those who have been struggling and those who have been blessed," CEO of the Springs Rescue Mission, Larry Yonker, said.

The meal has been a tradition for decades.

They also provide clothing, personal items and health checks for those in need.
