EXPRESS TEL LONG-DISTANCE AND TWO RESCUE MISSIONS IN LOS ANGELES AREA PROVIDE FREE CALLS TO LOS ANGELES HOMELESS FOR THANKSGIVING

 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A second rescue mission in Los Angeles has teamed with Express Tel long-distance company to give free long-distance calls to homeless people in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving.
 This means, courtesy of Express Tel, there will be two rescue missions in the Los Angeles area providing free long-distance phone calls: Union Station, 412 South Raymond, Pasadena; and Union Rescue Mission, 226 South Main Street, Los Angeles.
 Express Tel has arranged for several telephone lines to be brought into Union Rescue Mission, 226 South Main Street, Los Angeles, where people will sign up to make free calls the day before Thanksgiving on Wednesday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
 Express Tel has also arranged for several telephone lines to be brought into Union Station, 412 South Raymond, Pasadena, where people will also be able to call free the day before Thanksgiving on Wednesday, Nov. 24, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
 "Thanksgiving is a time when many people need to make long-distance calls to loved ones," said Yvette Rebong of Express Tel. "We've seen people call home at Thanksgiving who actually haven't talked to their parents in years because phone calls cost money and they're homeless.
 "If we can make Thanksgiving a little brighter for these people by putting them in touch with loved ones they haven't talked to in a long time, then we have met our goal."
 "It's donations and gifts like Express Tel's that help make our operation work," said Frank Clark of the Union Station Foundation. "The generous voluntary efforts of businesses and community organizations are of tremendous support this time of year."
 A low-cost alternative, Express Tel is a full-service long-distance telephone company, providing a full range of discounted products and services for those who communicate throughout the world. Established in 1982, the company has offices throughout California, Nevada, and Utah.
