Salvation Army distributes Thanksgiving meals at Asbury Park Corps
The Salvation Army is helping those in need as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches.
The organization on Thursday gave out free turkey meals at the Asbury Park Corps on Asbury Avenue. It is one of 7,000 centers across the United States offering food for the holiday.
"We do our best to serve them as we can, and if we can just provide a warm meal for them on Thanksgiving, it allows them to maybe have a little extra to pay their rent or pay their bills or help their kids,” says Maj. Josh Lyle.
Lyle says that the Salvation Army is assisting six million people this year.
Anyone who would like to donate can do so at the Salvation Army’s iconic red kettles which will start showing up around New Jersey soon. Donations can also be made on the Salvation Army’s website.
