The Salvation Army has identified more than 500 low-income seniors who would not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal and are homebound.
"As a result of our generous community, these seniors will enjoy a Thanksgiving meal of turkey, potatoes, green beans, dressing, cranberry sauce, a roll and pie. The Salvation Army will also serve federal inmates and their families. We expect to serve more than 500 meals on Thanksgiving," officials said.
Packing and delivery of these meals will take place at The Salvation Army, 800 McCallie Ave. at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
The Salvation Army of Cleveland will be hosting a community-wide Thanksgiving meal to be served at The Salvation Army, 437 Inman St. West. They will begin at noon and serving until 2 p.m. They are expecting to serve 250-300 individuals.
