The Cape Salvation Army will be busy over the next six weeks, cooking meals, distributing winter wear and ringing bells for donations for Christmas. The Good Hope Street location is preparing a large Thanksgiving Day meal for an estimated crowd of 14-hundre people. It runs from noon until 2 PM Thursday. They will also start giving out the 32-hundred items of winter wear collected last week during the Coats for Kids campaign. You can also get them on the 26th from 9 until noon and 1 until 4 PM. Major Ben Stillwell tells KZIM KSIM they have already had over 435 families sign up for annual Christmas baskets as well. Stillwell says you can still donate side dishes and the trimmings for the Thanksgiving meal at their Good Hope Street office through 4 PM Wednesday. The Army has a goal of 320-thousand-dollars for their Christmas Tree of Lights campaign.
