Cheboygan County Salvation Army in Need of Donations for Thanksgiving Day Meals

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army, nationwide, is gearing up to help more people than ever before, this Thanksgiving.

And that expectation isn't too far off for what's expected here in Northern Michigan.

The Salvation Army in Cheboygan is in need of food for their big meal.

The business manager, George Olson, expects to see a slight increase in need from last year.

Depending on the numbers, he expects to get 32 turkeys this year, to include in close to 600 meals.

Turkey donations can be dropped off at Glen's in Cheboygan as soon as possible.

Other donations, including potatoes and squash, can be dropped off at the Salvation Army.

Olson says, "We put the word out to the area churches and into the community at large that we need potatoes.  We need over 200 pounds of potatoes."

If you're able to donate, or would like to sign up to receive a Thanksgiving Day Meal, call the Salvation Army in your area.
