Salvation Army in Rochester offers free Thanksgiving meal

Salvation Army Red Kettle stolen from Kroger store in GP Woods

"Today is one of my favorite times of the year", Kimberley George, Director of Marketing and Development for The Salvation Army, said.

Gratitude filled the room as sweet potato, cornbread and turkey filled the bellies of dozens of people fighting different storms. The Salvation Army serves more than 4,700 people each year by providing transitional housing at the Kirby House, youth programs, summer camp, emergency disaster services, emergency food pantry, furniture and clothing, assistance for families at Christmas, budget counseling, Sunday school, church services, pastoral care, nursing home visitation and more.

Lines were out the door at the Salvation Army for their annual Thanksgiving feast in Manatee County.

Captain Marvels says that over 500 people have already signed up to receive help for Christmas.

"We have a lot of volunteers this year, so we made a decision to do this a little differently", Jackson said.

In fact, this is the 30th year the company has teamed up with Salvation Army to provide a meal for the less fortunate.

Jackson arrived in Danville about 18 months ago to head of the Salvation Army here, and said he likes Danville.

"I hope that it gives my kids the message that it's a good thing to help people out that's in need", said Walker. There is always a need for more volunteers to deliver meals to shut-ins. Built almost 130 years ago, MacPherson said the centre is in a "bad state of fix".

Jamye Sheppard, executive director of Haywood Habitat for Humanity, said Belk's new corporate giving policy is news to her.

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign kicks off on Black Friday and will run through December 23. "There is great power in all our Belk associates and customers rallying around one cause - and we really want to focus all of our efforts on this impactful campaign".

We all have our thanksgiving traditions, but for many volunteers in Springfield, the tradition is feeding others.

He'll get his Thanksgiving with his family, but not before helping with these ones.
