Salvation Army hands out Thanksgiving boxes to feed metro area

More than 400 families across the area will have meals this Thanksgiving courtesy of the Salvation Army.

FARGO — For the 10th year, the Fargo-Moorhead Salvation Army got out Tuesday, Nov. 23, and handed out meals to families ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Starting Tuesday morning at Northview Church until that afternoon, the group supplied a Thanksgiving meal of turkey, pumpkin pie, cranberries and vegetables, among other items, to over 400 families.

"We are thrilled to do this every year to ensure our families have a good, quality Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving Day," said Maj. Abe Tamayo.

Volunteers from the Fargo Police Department as well as American Crystal Sugar assisted the Salvation Army Tuesday afternoon.

Tamayo says the group plans to do the same thing next month for Christmas and will include toys as well.
