Community comes together to treat veterans to Thanksgiving meal

WACO, Texas (KWTX) The Heart of Texas Veterans One Stop said thank you to nearly 600 veterans with their annual Thanksgiving meal.

Heart of Texas Veterans One Stop hosts Thanksgiving meal for veterans in Waco on Friday, November 22.

The One Stop provides a multitude of services to local veterans and Friday staff and volunteers hosted the meal, funded through $3,500 in donations.

Volunteers with the group's Kitchen Angels and local realtors served up the food, including turkey and all the traditional fixings, plus 640 slices of pie.

Deserts were donated by local churches and other groups.

Program manager Bobbi Stewart said it wouldn't have happened without the generosity of Central Texans both volunteering and donating money and other resources.

She hopes people check out the Heart of Texas Veterans One Stop Facebook page so they can see their friends and neighbors in the community who helped make it possible.
