Thanksgiving meals hosted by The Salvation Army
Over 200 volunteers prepared and delivered 1,000 full-course Thanksgiving meals throughout Salt Lake City. Meals consisted of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, yams, green beans, dinner rolls and an assortment of desserts.
According to a press release from The Salvation Army, one family has volunteered for 26 years in a row, the Cline Family.
“I couldn’t believe so many people are happy and willing to selflessly give up their Thanksgiving Day to serve a meal to someone else,” said Captain James Combs, with The Salvation Army in Salt Lake.
Thousands of Utahns receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through a range of services. The annual Thanksgiving dinner provided is the largest feeding event in SLC.
