What's the Deal with The Corn Song?

A reporter was simply interviewing this cute little boy about his love of corn. He tells the camera that once he knew that corn was real, he had to try it...I mean, it's corn! Someone on TikTok took a snippet of his interview and remixed it into a little ditty. Warning, this simple song about corn WILL get stuck in your head.

What Does the Corn Song have to do with The Evansville Rescue Mission?

I'm so glad you asked. Your Evansville Rescue Mission has been hard at work raising money, collecting food items, and taking signups for the 2022 Gobbler Gathering. This year, they had planned on passing out 1,500 boxes of food. These meal boxes contain everything a family of four would need for a very nice Thanksgiving dinner - Even the turkey.

Unfortunately, the number of families that need a holiday meal is on the rise. So, now your ERM will pass out 2,000 boxes of food coming up Tuesday, November 22, 2022. An item that is quite easy to give, and that everybody loves, is corn! They really need Jiffy Cornbread Mix and canned corn. Several local businesses are now drop-off sites, including the Evansville Rescue Mission at 500 East Walnut Street Evansville, IN 47713.

The Thrift Store by Evansville Rescue Mission is now in its amazing new space inside Washington Square Mall. Take a look at the hard work that has gone into this unique new thrift store.

Then & Now - Evansville's Washington Square Mall Through the Years

Evansville is home to a lot of unique buildings including the first enclosed retail shopping center in Indiana. Yes, our very own Washington Square Mall was the place to be when it opened in 1963. If you walk through the mall today, you would never guess how alive the shops were, even through the 1980s. Enjoy this walk down memory lane I've put together, and maybe someday there will be new life inside 5011 Washington Ave.
