Salvation Army Prepares Dinner For 600
What do 200 pounds of potatoes, 80 pounds of squash and 29 turkeys get you? Thanksgiving dinner for about 600 hungry people.
Work started bright and early Wednesday for volunteers at the Salvation Army in Watertown who were busy preparing for Thursday's annual big feast.
Officials say Thanksgiving dinner isn't just about the food, it's about family, too.
"It's very lonely to be there on your own," said Salvation Army Lt. Summer Hough, "so it's nice to have a family you can come to."
"And that's what we provide here," she said. "We provide a family.
There's delivery service for those who can't make it to dinner. Call 315-782-4470 for more information.
