November 23 TurkeyFest

This Thanksgiving Day, The Salvation Army will sponsor its 26th annual TurkeyFest at The Salvation Army Kroc Center, 2825 Y Street, on Nov. 23. The city-wide feeding effort provides a complimentary Thanksgiving dinner to those who would otherwise have none. It also assures that older adults are not alone on the national holiday.

The Salvation Army has approximately 2,000 complete dinners available for those who qualify. Registrants must be 55 or older. RSVPs must be received by Friday, Nov. 17. Reservations can be made by calling 402-898-6023.

On Nov. 23, more than 700 volunteers will deliver turkey dinners to hundreds of the homebound elderly in the metropolitan area. TurkeyFest deliveries begin at 9:30 a.m. when pre-registered volunteers arrive at the Kroc Center to pick up their meals.
