Volunteers carve turkeys for Salvation Army Christmas Day meals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - While you and your family may be preparing for your holiday meal, it's probably nothing like what the Salvation Army went through on Monday.

Volunteers spent the day carving up, or de-boning, dozens of turkeys to ensure they're ready to go for meals on Christmas Day.

Major Douglas Rowland, with the Salvation Army, says this whole process would never be possible without their volunteers.

Volunteers do everything from de-bone the turkey, to cooking, to delivering the meals.

"It's an exciting time to see and hear the fun they have being together, getting the job done, and feeling good," Rowland said.

The Salvation Army is expected to serve as many as 1,500 meals on Christmas Day.
