About 300 of the community's less fortunate were served an early Thanksgiving meal in Omaha Wednesday.
The Salvation Army's Community Thanksgiving Dinner was served for lunch at its 24th and Pratt facility. “Every dollar at this time of year that we are collecting at our kettles goes back into the community for programs such as this one," said Salvation Army Lt. Pam Kasten.
"We have lots of people that come to us on a daily basis to our feeding program that will never be able to afford to have a full Thanksgiving spread that many people do enjoy. So, this is our opportunity to give that to them."
The Salvation Army bought the potatoes, bread, and stuffing. The Upstream Brewery removed the bones and cooked the turkeys and volunteers provided dessert.
