Salvation Army serving the homeless and hungry

COLUMBUS, Ga. – With Thanksgiving one day away, local soup kitchens across the valley are making sure the homeless and hungry can enjoy their holiday.

The Salvation Army opened their doors to more than 100 people at their annual Thanksgiving celebration.

Not everyone who comes is homeless.

Justin Joseph, used to be homeless and he comes to catch up with old friends.

“I was at a point where I didn’t have nowhere to stay. It’s good for people because some folks don’t know where to go. So they can come here instead of being out in the streets and getting into trouble,” said Joseph.

Captain Josh Hinson, with the Salvation Army says they look forward to serving the community…especially during the holidays.

If you missed Wednesday’s Thanksgiving dinner at the Salvation Army you can go to the Valley Rescue Mission on Thursday at 11 a.m.
