Salvation Army preparing holiday feast with a Hawaiian twist

Posted: Updated:

Christmas lunch at the Salvation Army will have a Hawaiian twist on Wednesday.

Volunteers spent the day making turkey and a special pork for the big feast.

The chef in charge says since the last holiday dinner was a little hectic, he wanted this lunch to be extra special, so he decided on a luau theme.

The organization's oven broke right before Thanksgiving and many feared that they wouldn't be able to prepare enough food.

Generous Lubbockites helped to cook the turkeys in their homes so everyone could have a warm meal.

Since then, a private donor decided to buy the Salvation Army a special Christmas gift - a brand new oven.

Salvation Army Communications Relations and Development Director Justin Eatherly says, "We're really thankful for the community that stepped up and helped us out during Thanksgiving. That's really paying off here during Christmas because we're able to use that oven to cook over 16 turkeys at one time."

The Salvation Army expects to feed around 350 people on Christmas Day.

The lunch is scheduled from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
