A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Starting Nov. 26, the Cherry Street Mission plans to deliver more than 700 Thanksgiving food boxes to those in need in the northwest Ohio community.
The Cherry Street Mission relies 100% on private donations, so they're looking for the support of the community to help fill the boxes, which each feed families of six.
"When you are homeless, you get the feeling sometimes people forget about you," said Bronko Wesolowski.
Wesolowski is not only volunteering his time to help collect and organize food, he is one of many people receiving food on Thanksgiving from the Cherry Street Mission.
Currently, the mission is low on essential Thanksgiving items, including green beans, mashed potatoes, and yams. However, it's not uncommon for the mission to be low on food, given the increase in demand for Thanksgiving meals.
For Wesolowski, receiving this meal makes the holiday season a little more enjoyable.
"Some of us don't have family, or else we've done stuff for our families to turn their backs on us, and it's nice that - it makes you feel good that others are still thinking about ya," explained Wesolowski.
Dan Rogers, CEO of the Cherry Street Mission, says food donations can be underestimated.
"Food is the most simple thing, but it is also the most profound thing we can do. Think about all the meals that we share with family and friends. It's the comradery and it's the fullness of it that really make the experience exactly that, something that can be remembered," said Rogers.
