Haven of Mercy: Christmas dinner, gifts, visit from Santa
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - One local church based organization provided food to nearly 4,000 hungry people. By mid-day, Haven of Mercy Ministries in Johnson City had fed about 2,000 people, and they expected to double that number by the end of the day. For the past 40 years, the haven has served Christmas dinner, provided gifts for the children, and even had a visit from Santa. Pastor and CEO Grant Rockley says the best part about the event is the sense of family that's created through giving back to the community.
