The Big Spring Salvation Army and its team of volunteers will wrap up preparations for Thursday’s Thanksgiving dinner today, as the local charity looks to celebrate the holiday with all the annual fun and fare.
According to Salvation Army Social Worker Bessie Flores, preparation work for the annual meal — which began earlier this week — is expected to be completed this afternoon, but for area residents hoping to lend a helping hand this holiday, there’s still time left.
“The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is always a really busy day for us. That’s when we de-bone the turkeys, peel the potatoes and do most of the prep work for Thanksgiving dinner,” Flores said. “However, that’s certainly not the end of it. We need volunteers willing to come in Thursday morning, as well.
