Salvation Army Asks For Thanksgiving Donations

Thanksgiving is now 24 days away and local charities are asking for your help.

The Salvation Army fed more than 250 people on Thanksgiving Day last year, and they expect that number to increase this year. What they need right now is food for the meal, including turkeys, hams, vegetables, fruit, ready to serve rolls and pies. They also need aluminum baking pans and plastic and paper goods like napkins and silverware.

You can drop your donations off at the Salvation Army at 16th and Avenue K. The deadline is November 15th. For more information, call 765-9434.

Meanwhile, the South Plains Food Bank is asking for frozen turkeys to help prepare its Thanksgiving food baskets. You can bring your turkeys to the food bank at 4612 Locust Avenue.
