CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) The Salvation Army serves meals every week day to those in need in the Casper community. On Thursday, they will serve more than 100 Thanksgiving meals.
“We’re really grateful for the opportunity to give them some care, compassion and love as their family,” Trish Simeroth, Major at The Salvation Army, said.
The Salvation Army is able to put this event together with the help of community donations and their local partners.
Simeroth says it takes a community effort to help people who are less fortunate. Being able to see people leaving The Salvation Army happy, is something she holds close to her heart.
“When we see these people come in, they leave with their hearts not only filled but their stomachs filled as well, that just touches my heart,” Simeroth said.
The Salvation Army is still looking for turkeys for their Thanksgiving meal. If you would like to donate a turkey, you can drop it off at their downtown location on Wednesday.
