Christmas party helps rescue mission

Posted: Updated:

A group of Billings workers saw a need for Christmas presents at the Montana Rescue Mission and held a Christmas party Thursday night.

Employees from Food Service Of America (FSA) gave out bags with that included sweaters, pajamas, toiletries and other necessities.

They served up coffee and dessert, something many at the mission say they want.

And they donated 15-hundred dollars to the rescue mission.

More then 200 have helped raise money and buy gifts throughout the year and 10 came to the rescue mission.

They all could see the appreciation for the gifts and the party from the 150 who attended.

"It's an amazing feeling," said Craig Austin, a marketing specialist for FSA.  "It's easy to forget how good we have it this time of year. And so working with these fine folks, seeing what they do every day. It's very humbling. We're just happy we can help out in any way possible."

"It's actually overwhelming," said tina Prosenick, FSA sales associate. "The smiles on their faces. Graciousness. They were all very thankful and happy to receive gifts and good deserts, they were all wonderful."

"Oh I thought it was beautiful," said Gaylene Page,FSA national accounts coordinator. "Humbling. It's got it's own rewards.  I'm happy to be here, happy to help."

Food Serrvice of America plans on making this an annual event.

The Montana Rescue Mission has another celebration planned for Christmas day.
