B.C. The Salvation Army is dishing out Thanksgiving dinners for Metrotown’s hungry and homeless.
“We’re going to have an emergency disaster truck, so a kitchen on wheels, many volunteers from the community and a full turkey dinner and dessert,” said Capt. Paul Trickett.
Every Monday, the Salvation Army hands out soup and sandwiches at two locations in the Metrotown area, and this is the eighth year volunteers have put together a special turkey dinner for Thanksgiving.
Trickett said they usually get 60 to 130 people showing up to eat. Many are new Canadians and the “working poor,” he added.
