Salvation Army Prepares Christmas Meal
The Salvation Army is gearing up to feed the masses of people that drop on by the shelter on Christmas day.
The kitchen staff is hard at work making final preparations for their 14th annual Christmas meal. It’s so far taken three days to cook eight turkeys, four hams and pounds of other food to accompany the meat. The cooks said they expect more than 200 people to come through the door. Salvation Army employees said they know the economy is bad and that's why they want to provide a good meal for those less fortunate.
"To help people who are not fortunate enough to help themselves and it's an honor for me to do this for many, many years for the Salvation Army," Salvation Army Kitchen Supervisor Harold Jarrell said.
The meal will be served on Tuesday starting at 11 a.m. and is open to Salvation Army residents and the community.
