CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

The Charlotte Rescue Mission is going to have a homemade dessert drive to feed homeless and recovering addicted men and women on Christmas Day.

The Mission needs the desserts dropped off to assist them in feeding those who seek food, comfort and hope.

The Mission is collecting homemade cakes, pies, cookies and other sweet treats for its annual Christmas dessert drive.

"We want everyone who comes to the Rescue Mission on Christmas Day to receive a real taste of home," said Rev. Tony Marciano, executive director of the Charlotte Rescue Mission.

The Charlotte Rescue Mission served more than 1,000 meals last Christmas Day and hopes to feed even more this year.
