2021 Drumstick Dash money to help the Roanoke Rescue Mission continue to provide meals to those in need

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – The annual Drumstick Dash returned in person on Thanksgiving Day this year. The event is hosted by Atlantic Union Bank and supports the Roanoke rescue mission.

Rescue Mission CEO Lee Clark said they are still counting the money raised by the thousands of attendees, but it looks like at least $ 250,000 has been raised.

Clark said most of this money goes towards her grocery budget. He said they provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to more than 100 people every day. The Rescue Mission supplies hundreds more with boxes of groceries every Saturday.

Clark and the Rescue Mission cannot thank everyone enough for the support they have shown this year, especially in helping them continue to provide vital service to those in need.

“Just to be able to provide three meals a day to anyone who is hungry. Both those who are homeless and those who are overwhelmed, unsure where to have their next meal, it makes a huge difference in people’s lives. “

The Rescue Mission is also currently in need of volunteers and for more information, please visit their website here.
