Spirits high as Pueblo Community Thanksgiving Dinner gets a new home

Posted: Updated:

It's a meal that attracts hundreds around Pueblo. 

The Pueblo Thanksgiving Meal was Thursday. This is the first year the meal was at the Spirit House Cabaret, but the spirits were still high despite the change of venue. 

The line was going out their door with hungry people, for some of the people there this is their only meal of the day. 

"It's a good deal that they this for us because you know we're homeless," Pueblo resident Robert Arellano said. 

"People who don't have a family and don't have a place to celebrate Thanksgiving can come and enjoy a good meal, something that is very special not every day type of meal," Jackie Jaramillo said. She is the President of the Pueblo Rescue Mission. 

Arellano said, it doesn't matter where the meal is, just having it means a lot to him. 

"These people are doing an outstanding job. They are doing a terrific job as they usually do. They are outstanding people to help people like us," he said. 

Close to a thousand people were served on Thanksgiving. The event also had to go boxes for people who couldn't make it to Spirit House.
