Soup Kitchens Renew Thanksgiving Spirit

La Estrella, Posted: Nov 27, 2008

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Today churches and nonprofit organizations are helping feed those who have fallen on hard times, recapturing the spirit of Thanksgiving to share and help others, reports La Estrella. Last year 156 people were served at the Salvation Army of Fort Worth, 1,140 in Dallas and 125 in Denton. The number of people served this year is expected to be even higher.

Jos Morales and his wife Mara are among those who are spending their Thanksgiving at the Salvation Army. Morales has not been able to work since he lost the use of his index finger in an accident. He recently lost his home and is now forced to rent a room at a hotel. "This is worthy of giving thanks to God, said the native of Mexico City, because what they are doing is reminiscent of the first immigrants who arrived in the country and were fed by the Indians.
