So the holiday season is upon us. It seems like it got here quickly this year. We had no spring and very little fall as well. With Thanksgiving bearing down on us the Salvation Army is planning on their annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner and they could use some help. Preparing for such a large feast is not easy and more hands would go a long way to helping them out.

The Quincy Salvation Army's free Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving Day, will be held Thursday, November 22 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at The Salvation Army Kroc Center located at 405 Vermont Street. Everyone in the community is invited to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with turkey and all the trimmings.

Your volunteer help is appreciated, but it is important to call The Kroc Center at 217-231-5626 to schedule your time this day, so that all who want to help have an opportunity.

Desserts are needed for the dinner. Please bring dishes for the meal in disposable containers. Everyone wishing to donate a dessert for the Thanksgiving dinner is asked to bring them to The Kroc Center between 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21.

For those needing a ride, transportation will be provided to The Kroc Center. Meals will also be delivered to shut-ins. For more information, transportation, or meal delivery contact The Salvation Army Kroc Center at 217-231-5626.
