These nonprofits are serving Thanksgiving meals to people in need

Here’s where volunteers can serve and hungry residents can eat and feast Thursday.

Local nonprofits and charitable organizations mustered volunteers Wednesday to feed and serve people in need ahead of Thanksgiving Day.

In Dallas, hundreds of helpers fed about 500 men and women experiencing homelessness at faith-based nonprofit OurCalling. The Norma’s Cafe-catered Thanksgiving lunch with turkey, fixing and pie fed the area’s unsheltered population. Volunteers also helped gather donated coats, warm pants and blankets in a drive-through collection.

Volunteers with the Dallas Life Foundation fried turkeys in preparation for feeding a Thanksgiving feast to people experiencing homelessness.
