Salvation Army of Victoria invite community to Thanksgiving Day luncheon

The Salvation Army of Victoria is inviting everyone out to their annual community thanksgiving day luncheon.

The luncheon will be held at the Salvation Army headquarters on 1302 North Louis Street from 11-2 AM. Volunteers and staff will be on hand to serve turkey, yams and other delicious thanksgiving food to those who attend. Major Laura Martin says she is excited to bring the community together for this thanksgiving feast.

“We want to be a community. And, we feel like it causes people to connect with each other. They get to talk with each other, tell their stories, laugh and just share the good times and the bad. And then, we can really truly see the things that we have to be thankful for.”

The Salvation Army expect up to two hundred people to attend the luncheon and have said they will not turn anyone away for their thanksgiving celebration.

Below is the official press release from the Salvation Army of Victoria:

Even though, The Salvation Army is still in Disaster Recovery mode ourselves, awaiting roof repairs so that we can resume our daily soup kitchen and reopen our homeless shelter – we could not pass up this opportunity to serve those in our community in need.
