(Over 1,900 enjoy Thanksgiving Day feast)…Those numbers are preliminary.
An exact count has not been announced. The Salvation Army says the numbers are not really important. What is important is that those who were not able to afford one, were able to enjoy a complete holiday meal. The Salvation Army Closed off Park Avenue, at 5th Street, and set up a large area with tables and chairs to feed those who showed up. The Hacienda Scholarship Foundation also reports a good turnout at their Thanksgiving Day luncheon at the Lion’s Center in Brawley. The Neighborhood House hosted their Thanksgiving Day meal at the Community Center in Calexico.
