Salvation Army in Petoskey Delivers Thanksgiving Meals to People in Need

The Salvation Army in Petoskey spent today preparing Thanksgiving meals for people in need. It’s the eighth year they’ve been in Petoskey distributing these meals.

It comes with all the fixings of a normal Thanksgiving dinner, green beans, mashed potatoes, rolls, and of course turkey. Containers were filled and some of Thursday’s volunteers made their way throughout the city to make the deliveries.

Most of the people they brought food to were seniors, mobility impaired, and shut-ins.

While the meal is important, Envoy Greg Irwin said it’s also an opportunity to bring some friendly faces. “Sometimes it takes me so long, they tease me a little bit to do my rounds because it is the connection and the fellowship that’s even more important because a lot of folks we see and deliver meals to, they certainly need the food but they need the human connection just as much,” he said.

Not only were meals brought to those who couldn’t leave their homes, but the poor and homeless as well.
