BOSTON (WHDH) - Bagging all the trimmings, stuffing the bags with stuffing, and potatoes, carrots and pumpkin pie.
Volunteers for the Salvation Army are trying to make the holiday season a little brighter; one bag at a time.
“This is the time when I realize how grateful I am for everything I have,” said Anna Bettigole, a volunteer.
The group of volunteers worked to make sure all the food basket were filled for Boston families for Thanksgiving.
“This is the most turkey baskets we’ve ever given out in the city of Boston, this year, nearly 2,100,” said Drew Forester, Communications Director of the Salvation Army.
Those 2,100 baskets will feed more than 10,000 people.
Volunteers spent the morning prepping and sorting the food.
The Salvation Army has a loyal group of helpers who come back year after year.
The non-profit says this time of year it’s easy to get volunteer, but they need help every single day.
