ABILENE, Texas -

Friday was an interesting day to hold the 15th annual Mission Thanksgiving collection drive for Love & Care Ministries.  Love & Care provides services to the homeless and less fortunate in the Abilene area.

The number of vehicles that passed through the Arrow Ford parking lot was down but Love & Care founder Mark Hewitt tells us he believes cash donations may be comparable to last year.

Your help is needed again Saturday.

Volunteers are needed to help unload all the trucks that were filled Friday with donated items.

Just stop by Love & Care Ministries at 233 Fannin.  They'll begin unloading about 8 a.m. but you can stop by mid-morning if you like.
