8-year-old Edie Beagles spends her Thanksgiving morning volunteering at the Salvation Army.
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The Salvation Army has done it again, feeding the hungry a warm Thanksgiving meal.
This year, the Salvation Army only needed a few volunteers, but Thursday when Channel 3 was on scene, about 40 volunteers were helping with food, talking, laughing and making sure everyone in need was reached, at least for the night.
And to one Chattanooga woman, giving back means the world.
"It means a lot because when I was a child, I actually received one of these dinners," says Flo Samuels.
The Salvation Army also is delivering meals to those who are homebound.
The organization is still accepting volunteers and donations for this holiday season.
