Greensboro, NC -- It was a night of giving at the 21st annual Feast of Caring Thursday night in Greensboro.

Hundreds of people showed up to support Greensboro Urban Ministry for their annual soup dinner.

The money raised will go to their $4 million operating budget.

The final tally isn't in but they hope to raise $50,000.

"We realize right here in our own local community that there are many people that don't have that guarantee of food, Many people don't have that guarantee of shelter. They're worried about where they're going to spend the night tonight on this cold dreary night," said Rev. Mike Aiken, Executive Director, Greensboro Urban Ministry.

William Mangum's annual holiday honor card was unveiled at the dinner. To purchase one, visit here. The cards are $5.

Since 1988, the honor cards have raised more than $4 million and this year, Greensboro Urban Ministry hopes to raise $250,000 in sales.

Aiken says GUM is preparing to serve a couple thousand meals on Thanksgiving next week.

This year, they will be serving at the Potter's Kitchen and Congregational United Church of Christ.
