• PORT ANGELES — The Salvation Army will mark Thanksgiving Eve on Wednesday with a free community meal.

The Thanksgiving dinner with turkey and all the fixings will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the facility at 202 S. Peabody St., in Port Angeles.

“We’re preparing for about 100 people,” said Captain Crystal Birks, the officer in charge.

“We have volunteers, we have turkey, we just need people to come and eat.”

PORT ANGELES — A free, public Thanksgiving meal will be offered at the Queen of Angels Church gym from noon to 3 p.m. Thursday.

The traditional Thanksgiving dinner at 209 W. 11th St., Port Angeles is free but donations will be accepted at the event or prior to it.

Organizers say volunteers are needed. They can call or text Catherine or Lance German 253-442-9412 or 360-912-5775.

Those who are home-bound can have meals delivered and those who want to donate sides to the meal also can call those numbers.

The meal drew 600 people in 2022, but this year there could be more or less, according to Catherine German.
