JACKSON, Miss.- Before digging into their own delicious Thanksgiving meals, the Salvation Army and hundreds of volunteers help feed the hungry and homeless.
Jackson’s Salvation Army Communications Director Kristin Miller says, “The morning of Thanksgiving we have literally hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who have made it a tradition to come out and feed those that would otherwise be without a Thanksgiving meal.”
From 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. volunteers box thousands of meals to go out to several different locations in the Jackson metro area. From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. they then take those meals and distribute them out to those in need.
Miller said, “From 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. we also bring over everyone staying at our Center of Hope Homeless Shelter, as well as, invite the public to come in and have Thanksgiving meal with us and that’s completely free at our location on Beasley Road in Jackson.”
