Volunteers give 25,000 meals

Read Full Story Here

Here we have a good example on how we, as a community and as individuals, should spend our holidays. Local city leaders spent the holiday helping the much needful individuals of Orlando. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer aims to give away free meals. Yes, you heard it right. 25,000 free meals. Mayor Buddy Dyer spearheaded the event together with the help of local individuals who wants to take part and share some compassion this holiday season.

The event is part of the annual celebration of the state. The annual Helpings From the Heart Thanksgiving Feast. Working together are Golden Corral and The Salvation Army Orlando to make this event possible every year. This event is now running successfully for 17 years now. Local individuals participated in the event and made it more meaningful. Local chefs took part in preparing the meals while the volunteers handed out the free meals. Every participant was working together in the aim of helping those in need and giving more meaning to the spirit of the holidays.
Although this does not happen on a monthly, weekly nor on a daily basis, we are still thankful for the wonderful hearts of each individual who took part in this wonderful event.
Thanks giving.
