CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As the Salvation Army gears up for its busiest time of year, they are asking for your help.

Cheyenne’s Salvation Army chapter staff will serve its Thanksgiving community meal on Nov. 24th.

They serve over 300 community members in-house from 11 am to 1 pm and deliver over 175 hot-meal boxes for home-bound folks, but they need our help with food donations and volunteers.

The staff is asking for donations of turkeys and boxed potatoes so that everyone can enjoy the holiday season.

They require over 60 turkeys and more, which come from the funds they collect from their kettle drives every year.

They are also starting their Angel Drive for Christmas and their Kettle Drive, which is the main yearly fundraiser they use to pay for the year’s charity activities.

“What you can expect is to be welcomed as a family and have a home cooked thanks giving meal with all the fixings. We want them to know we are all a family, and we are in this together, and you dont have to be alone,” said Capt. Crystal Smoak, Officer for the Salvation Army.

The cut-off date to sign up for the hot-meal delivery is Nov. 18th.
