Larger Numbers are expected for this year’s Thanksgiving meal.
Mobile, AL (November, 2013) â€“ The Salvation Army Coastal Alabama Area Command has seen a greater need for services which means there will be a greater need for those coming to spend their Thanksgiving at The Salvation Army on Dauphin Street. There have been several very generous supporters, like Hy-Grade Valve, donating 75 turkeys â€“ however, in anticipation of larger than usual turn out we are looking for a few more as well as at least 50 hams.
Financial donations will also be accepted.
Last year, The Salvation Army served nearly 1,000 plates, and has been serving the community of coastal Alabama since 1899.
