The Union Gospel Mission in St. Paul is making sure the needy won't be going without turkey and all the trimmings on Thanksgiving Day.

The organization once again is gong out free Thanksgiving dinner grocery bag, each bag filled to the brim with what you'd expect to see on the dinner table come Nov. 22.

"Potatoes, stuffing, green beans, peas, corn, a dessert mix, gravy, rice," said the Mission's Brian Molohon.

"We'll also give everyone a turkey when they show up."

The Union Gospel Mission can only give out the free grocery bags to people who register for one.  

Registration is underway at the St. Paul community center on 376 Western Avenue North.  

You can register on Tuesday, Oct. 30 and Thursday, Nov. 1 at the men's campus on 435 University Avenue East in St. Paul.  

There is also registration at the men's campus on Saturday, Nov. 3.

Union Gospel Mission usually assembles enough grocery bags to make 60,000 turkey dinners.
