Salvation Army feeds hundreds of people on Thanksgiving in Savannah

Salvation Army serves Thanksgiving meals

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Salvation Army on Montgomery Street opened its doors to hundreds of people for Thanksgiving on Thursday.

They served green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pecan pie, and other refreshments.

The Salvation Army usually serves about 80,000 meals throughout the year to the homeless.

While they usually supply meals to those most in need, Thursday was open to anyone who wanted a hot meal.

“The opportunity for people to come and get together on this day is a chance for us to think about how grateful we are for all the blessings that we have, and then to enjoy shared company," said Major Paul Egan, Salvation Army Corps officer.

Egan said more than 80 people stayed in their shelters the night before Thanksgiving and their door is always open for anybody who needs a meal. He also said they are always looking for volunteers to ring the bells for their Red Kettle Campaign.
