The Greater Houston Area has been through a lot these past two months. During Harvey -and now after- our community came together to helped each other out during our greatest time of need. There is a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
In the spirit of giving thanks and coming together to help those who have hit hard times, The Salvation Army of Greater Houston is inviting the community, especially those affected by Hurricane Harvey, to join us this Thanksgiving Day at three of our homeless shelters.
Harbor Light Center
Our homeless shelter for men, Harbor Light Center, located at 2407 North Main, will be serving meals to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Our Family Residence, a homeless shelter for families, located at 1603 Mc Gowen, will open its doors at 12 noon, serving until 3 p.m.
Conroe’s Center of Hope
For those living in Montgomery County, we are excited to announce that our Salvation Army Conroe Corps will be bringing back the Thanksgiving Feast, in collaboration with the Friends of Conroe, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at our new individual and family homeless shelter: Wayne Bergstrom Center of Hope, 301 Avenue E.
Volunteer staff from The Cheesecake Factory in Friendswood will once again join our Pasadena Corps Community Center to host the annual Thanksgiving Day Feast with The Salvation Army. From 10 a.m. to noon on Thanksgiving Day, staff volunteers from the restaurant will prepare a full-service, sit-down meal that includes freshly roasted turkey with all the trimmings and The Cheesecake Factory’s famous seasonal Pumpkin Cheesecake. Tickets to the annual Thanksgiving Day Feast have been distributed in advance.
In addition to the Thanksgiving feasts we will be hosting for both our clients and the public at these locations, our other program locations will also be hosting private Thanksgiving activities for our clients and members.
