KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Salvation Army helped serve hundreds of people a warm Thanksgiving meal this year.
The organization hosted its annual Thanksgiving dinner Thursday at the Salvation Army Linwood Center.
More than 200 volunteers helped serve about 500 people a Thanksgiving feast.
"I think it's very important because there are several individuals in our community that are all alone, looking for something to be able to come together with other people and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner,” said Major Charles Smith, with the Salvation Army. “That's why we're doing it."
As part of the Thanksgiving tradition, 100 more Salvation Army volunteers delivered meals to 800 people across the metro.
