Salvation Army still needs donations for Thanksgiving Dinner

The Salvation Army of Abilene, located on Butternut Street, is preparing an array of supplies for Thanksgiving Day. They are currently recruiting volunteers to donate food, prepare dishes, and serve meals. Part of the Salvation Army’s services include providing Thanksgiving dinner to anyone in need, including the delivery of the meal to any without access to transportation.

Development Director Jan Morrison asks for volunteers to help contribute to and curate Thanksgiving meals, "We need a hundred turkeys to feed up to 750 people. So, we still need turkeys, we need pies, we need canned goods, and that list is on our website.”

The SalvationArmyAbilene.org lists both needs for donated goods as well as volunteer opportunities through the holidays.

Morrison says volunteers will cook side dishes and turkeys before Thanksgiving Day, serve guests eating at The Salvation Army shelter on Thanksgiving Day, prepare meals for delivery, and transport meals within Abilene city limits.

The Salvation Army will accept donations for the Thanksgiving meal at the Butternut Street location through Saturday.
