Several charities, businesses offering a free Thanksgiving meal

There will be several chances to have a Thanksgiving meal this year.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Thanksgiving in a pandemic may look a bit different. Families have been encouraged to gather virtually instead of together to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic has also affected the income of several families. 

Several businesses are offering a helping hand this year. 

The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army will prepare 400 to-go Thanksgiving meals on Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at 501 Josephine St.
