Salvation Army of Evansville hosts community Thanksgiving festival
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Salvation Army of Evansville invited the public to the community Thanksgiving festival on Wednesday.
It happened at their location on North Fulton Avenue.
The event not only provided a Thanksgiving meal to hundreds of people in need, but it also provided a place for families to take pictures.
Organizers also handed out hygiene kits and stuffed animals for kids. Major Jason Poff says they expected to serve around 600 meals.
“One of the things you miss the most is being able to sit around that table with family and have a dinner,” Poff said. “And it’s not even the food as much as it is the fellowship in these types of holidays.”
Poff said this many meals could not have been served without the dozens of volunteers who helped out.
