If it weren't for the Salvation Army and its army of volunteers, Thursday would have been just an average day for a number of homebound elderly in the Omaha area.
Instead, Thanksgiving lived up to its name, with about 1,550 needy people 55 and older receiving a hot holiday meal courtesy of the Salvation Army Kroc Center's TurkeyFest 2013 and its more than 160 volunteers, who cooked, prepared and delivered the donated goodies for the 21st consecutive year.
