TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Although Thursday is Thanksgiving Day, not everyone is able to have a holiday meal with their families.
But The Salvation Army in Tallahassee made sure that no one goes hungry.
A record of 500 people attended The Salvation Army Thanksgiving lunch Wednesday and celebrated with other people from their community.
Many volunteers helped make this happen and served all of the guests to bring a smile to everyone's face.
We spoke to Leon County Deputy Dave Teems and Florida High baseball player...William Pfeiffer...about what makes events like this so special.
"We don't get called when dinner is good. We don't get called when things are going well," said Deputy Teems. "So to be able to come and give back and serve people that really need food... is a great thing."
Pfeiffer said, "Any chance we get the team is always there to help out. It's great team bonding. We work together for a common goal just like the season... we're serving other people."
People we spoke to at this event said they are so grateful to have a Thanksgiving meal around the holidays and really appreciate the efforts by The Salvation Army.
