A group of businesses in Colorado Springs have pooled money and resources to give 125 military families a free, precooked Thanksgiving dinner. Now, they're just waiting for the families.
The group started giving out the turkeys with all the trimmings Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, they had 115 dinners still waiting. They want to give them all away by noon Tuesday.
Anyone serving in the military can go to Get More Autos on 125 E. Motor Way in Colorado Springs to pick up a voucher. That person then takes the voucher to Sovereignty Wines on 1785 S. 8th Street to pick up the food. They just need to show a military ID.
Businesses that have contributed to the cause include: Quein's Aquatics, Get More Autos, Sovereignty Wines, Beau Monde Kennels, Bogey's West, Renewal by Andersen, Columbine Kitchen & Bath, Albertsons, and Office Depot.
