Mark R. Madler Mylan Trivanovich has never been big on cranberry sauce, but that didn't stop him from eating it on Thursday at the Thanksgiving meal served at the Salvation Army. "I was surprised at how full I was," said Trivanovich, who has been homeless from time to time for 20 years. "It was all wonderful. I am stuffed." Trivanovich was among the estimated 300 people that Salvation Army Capt. James Sloan expected to serve during the 90-minute meal.

As families and friends gave thanks at bounteous tables across Glendale on Thursday, a spirit of giving also accompanied the Thanksgiving holiday in a dulcet harmony. Around noon at the Glendale Salvation Army, Capt. James Sloan waited patiently in the doorway, on the cusp of the army’s annual Thanksgiving meal. “It’s that time of day when you have your party ready and you’re just hoping people show up,” he said. As more than 100 people began filing in through the double doors, it was instantly clear — people were definitely showing up. Between 60 and 70 volunteers came together to put on the event, slicing turkey, serving attendees and cleaning up at the end of the day. The food is purchased through funds raised by the army’s advisory board, and the turkeys are shuttled over to the Glendale Hilton for cooking.

Salvation Army kettle collectors hit streets Monday. While some spots still ban them, Mervyns did not. GLENDALE -- The ringing of bells filled the air Monday as Salvation Army began its annual fundraising campaign, urging passersby to pitch what they can into the familiar red kettles. And those red kettles and the bell ringers that accompany them are back in some familiar locations where they were banned last year. Bell ringers are back at Mervyn's on Broadway and Brand Boulevard, one of the Salvation Army's busiest spots, which told the charity it could not collect in front of the store last year.

Gary Moskowitz Homeless and four months pregnant, 49-year-old Trudy Messick savored each bite of her Thanksgiving Day feast Thursday at Glendale's Salvation Army headquarters. Many of her meals typically come from scraps found in restaurant dumpsters, but now that she's pregnant, she relies more heavily on free food provided by the Salvation Army, Messick said. On Thursday, Messick sat among several rows of other homeless and low-income individuals and families seated at long, folding tables at Glendale's Salvation Army.

The Lord's work needs no spin doctor I have recently followed the events surrounding the Lord's Kitchen and I am in full support of the efforts brought forth by St. Mark's Episcopal Church and all the other organizations who seek to keep the Lord's Kitchen going. Susie Fowler Kenny, assistant for ministry development at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, mentioned how this is not about the ID-Policy, and I absolutely agree with her ("Sometimes we must offer fish to those in need," Community Commentary July 15)

Fred Ortega The crowds have returned to the Salvation Army's Lord's Kitchen, but no one knows for how long. Two meetings have been held between the Salvation Army and a group of nine churches and charitable organizations to find an alternative site for the program, which provides free meals for the homeless and needy.But efforts to find a new location have been fruitless, Salvation Army Capt. James Sloan said Friday. "When you are talking about bringing large amounts of homeless people to other parts of town, people are hesitant," Sloan said, as volunteers served food to dozens of patrons in the kitchen's dining hall.
