Thanksgiving with the Salvation Army

The Salvation Army in Muskingum County would like to thank the community for their donated turkeys, many of which are already roasting in preparation for Wednesday’s meal.

Office Coordinator Mindy McCloy said more than 70 turkeys were received- that’s more than she thinks they’ll need.

"If we don’t need all the turkey we’ve gotten for Thanksgiving dinner they will be used," explained McCloy. "Our next thing will be our Christmas outreach, we have a lot of Christmas food baskets to fill and we like to use turkeys if possible."

An item still needed is turkey stuffing. McCloy estimates they will serve more than 800 meals to those in need.

"There are some people that maybe not have a place to go on Thanksgiving, maybe their going to be alone or not going to have food for their table and this is just a way that they can come in and have company," said McCloy. 

The meal will be served Wednesday- that’s the day before Thanksgiving- from 4 until 6 o’clock.
