COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- The Salvation Army reported Tuesday it needed a thousand pies for its Thanksgiving community dinner.

Our community showed up!

Pies were flowing into the center on Yuma Street by the truckload today.

One donation was so big it could help feed a lot of people. A Monument man organized a fundraiser that brought in $1,500 to help.

All of this generosity will help folks across southern Colorado.

“One wonderful fact that I found out about last year is that we provide 1,500 meals that are delivered to people who are homebound, that can’t get out. So when someone says ‘God Bless, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas’, it’s enough to bring joy to someone who may be homebound,” Salvation Army Captain Erin Kaufmann said.

The Salvation Army still needs some more pies. You can drop them off at 908 Yuma Street Thanksgiving day until 11 in the morning.

The pies are being served with a traditional feast prepared by cooks at Fort Carson.
