    NEW ORLEANS -- Many homeless people spent their Thanksgiving holiday at the New Orleans Mission, and there were dozens of volunteers to make sure they had a hot meal.

    Hard Rock hosted dinner at the Mission where dozens of volunteers served the guests restaurants-style to make them feel special for the holiday.

    Over at the convention center, Sheriff Marlin Gusman and hundreds of volunteers created one large dining room. Local favorites like Charmaine Neville and Irvin Mayfield performed.

    The sheriff's office was prepared to provide nearly 3,000 people with a warm meal.

    At both events, volunteers said they were grateful to be able to help the less fortunate, and those who came for a meal were more than appreciative of the help.

    The struggle to find a decent meal doesn't end for many of these people after thanksgiving that’s why New Orleans Mission feeds the homeless all year round. It is located at 1130 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.
