On Thanksgiving morning, Chicago attorney Bob Kreisman volunteered at the St. Louis Harbor Lights Salvation Army with family members from both St. Louis and Chicago. This is an annual event for the Kreisman family, who serve as waiters for those who come to enjoy the feast.
A total of 60 turkeys were cooked this year to feed the over 100 St. Louis homeless or facility residents who gathered at the Salvation Army. The feast was complete with ample portions of dressing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and of course, desserts. The atmosphere was festive and joyful as everyone gathered together to celebrate Thanksgiving.
The St. Louis Harbor Lights Salvation Army is a community center and provides social services, such as substance abuse and character building programs. It also provides Bible study, Sunday services, and music and arts for its visitors.
As the holiday season continues the Salvation Army has many more opportunities to volunteer your time or money to help those in need. Donations can be mailed to the Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1607, St. Louis, MO 63188-1607, or can be made via the Salvation Army website.
