GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, local organizations are making sure they do everything they can for those in need.

Each year, Canyon View Vineyard Church and the Salvation Army provide meals for those in need of a Thanksgiving dinner.

This evening, Volunteers from across the Western Slope are distributing more than 1,000 meals to be delivered to the community.

Church officials tell us this is a way to give back and connect with those in the community while helping those who need it most.

“We do this every Thanksgiving and we’ve done it for more than 14 years. It’s just a great opportunity to serve and love our community. For people who may not get a meal on Thanksgiving, we’re able to deliver it to them, have a little chat with them and see how they’re doing and just really connect,” says Canyon View Vineyard Church Director, Landon Miracle.
