FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – This year was a struggle for many families and The Salvation Army wanted to make sure Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t on that list.
The Salvation Army handed out pre-packaged meals for any family in need at their Thanksgiving meal drive.
Volunteers also delivered meals to first responders and anyone unable to leave their home to get a meal.
Greg Chambers with The Salvation Army said he is thankful he can help serve the community, and the people receiving meals are too, even if it is a little different this year.
“They’re very appreciative they can get food even though we can’t have a sit down meal. They’re still happy that we’re able to provide for them,” he said.
Chambers said around 300 meals were handed out today.
