The Thrift Store by Evansville Rescue Mission and Mission Grounds Coffee have settled into Washington Square Mall quite nicely. Now, one of their biggest fundraisers of the year will also be on Evansville's Southside at Washington Square Mall.


Move Your Feet So Others Can Eat

Those seven little words can mean the world to a family right here in the Evansville, IN area that will have a Thanksgiving meal this year. Over the past ten years, your Evansville Rescue Mission has helped over 19,000 families enjoy a full Thanksgiving meal, and it is funded through the Drumstick Dash.

New Location for 2022

We spoke with Kyle Gorman, he is the Executive Director of Advancement at Evansville Rescue Mission about why they moved the Drumstick Dash from their main campus in Downtown Evansville. He said it just makes sense to invite the runners and walkers to see the Thrift Store, and of course Mission Grounds Coffee, after the race.


The course will begin at the entrance to The Thrift Store, and then runners will get to see a different part of Evansville. Registration is now open for the Saturday, November 12, 2022 race.
