The Salvation Army, the largest human services organization in New Jersey and the second largest disaster relief charity in the state, served approximately 300 people a greatly needed Thanksgiving Day Breakfast. This breakfast is held annually to aid families in need, including the working poor from Hackensack and surrounding towns. Attendees, enjoyed a complete and hearty Thanksgiving Day Breakfast, including scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, juice and coffee. The volunteers prepared food, served people and provided companionship to those in attendance.
“Every year we serve this unique Thanksgiving meal in the morning as these adults and children don’t usually eat breakfast most days. Many go without,” says Lieutenant Amarilis Ayala of The Salvation Army Hackensack Corps. “The Salvation Army is focused on helping people become self-sufficient through the dozens of programs we offer year-round.”
