The Salvation Army in Muskingum County gave thanks by giving.

Moved by the community’s generosity, Major Ralph Campbell said more than 100 turkeys were donated for Wednesday’s Thanksgiving dinner and was served by local volunteers.

"I mean they could be sitting at home, watching wife get ready for tomorrow but instead they are here helping less fortunate," said Campbell.

Campbell said last year’s dinner served more than 800 people and will likely serve even more this year.

"I think it’s about a Spence of family and regardless of background or what we come from or what we have or don’t have we can come and feel part and not be lonely," said Captain Diane Campbell. "It is Thanksgiving, it’s a time to enjoy each others fellowship."

Thursday morning Christ’s Table will be offering a Thanksgiving dinner for those in need between 10:30 and 12:30.
