Salvation Army Provides Thousands of Thanksgiving Meals and Food Hampers



Across the country, The Salvation Army aims to ensure no one goes hungry this holiday season. Throughout the course of October, Salvation Army locations will be providing nutritious supplies from our food banks, and at select locations, serving a warm Thanksgiving dinner to those in need.
