Free meals on Thanksgiving
YAKIMA, Wash.- 200 Thanksgiving meals were handed out to the community today, all thanks to a local family and the Salvation Army.
The family decided they wanted to give back to the community this year, and the Salvation Army helped make that possible by donating 200 meals.
"This is just something that everyone should do at some time in their life. It's nice to be able to socialize and meet people in need, and just to give them something additional to do for the holidays," said Geordy Nelson, a volunteer.
This is the first year the family and the Salvation Army put this together, and say they're planning on making it a Yakima tradition.
"This right here, shows me that everything is worth it and more. Just giving back and that's the way it should be, how the community should come together," said Camp Hope Resident Edward Casey.
