Giving Thanks
& Helping Out On

Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day some of our ladies took time out of their family festivities to spend time helping their community. Every year the Salvation Army serves a community Thanksgiving Dinner, completely FREE, to the public.

And every year we have ladies who volunteer to spend part of their day welcoming citizens, serving food and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army.

Even our emcee, Steve (Right), got into the action, serving up some tasty grub!
