• Charlotte Rescue Mission opens doors on Christmas


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On Easter, Thanskgiving and Christmas, the Charlotte Rescue Mission opens its doors to the community and serves warm meals to hundreds of people from across Charlotte.

    This Christmas the mission started at 6 a.m. with a hot breakfast.

    Afterward, guests were able to watch movies in their chapel as well as make free long-distance calls to love ones who they may not have spoken to in years.

    We want them to feel like they're going home to grandmas for the holidays," said director Rev. Tony Marciano.

    Volunteers will also be serving a traditional Christmas dinner from 11:45 a.m to 1:30 p.m.
