November 15, 2014 (El Cajon)--You can help a family in need during the holidays.  On Tuesday, November 25, from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., the Salvation Army in El Cajon will hold a special “drive-thru food drive” at their offices located at 1011 East Main, El Cajon.  The Salvation Army Drive Through Thanksgiving Food Drive rallies the San Diego East County community to contribute Thanksgiving dinners for families in need. To participate, drive to The Salvation Army El Cajon Corps to donate a frozen turkey, and/or any of the fixings, or make a cash donation.

Sitting down to a Thanksgiving meal with family and friends is one of the greatest joys and privileges in life. The Salvation Army wants everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy that moment. One of the most rewarding aspects of donating those meals is seeing families walk away filled with joy and gratitude. Thanksgiving meals help families create lasting memories.  Thanksgiving meals provide families the time to be...a family. For more information, please call (619) 440-4683, ext. 401.
