 Thanksgiving day can be a lonley time for some, if they have no family to spend it with.

"So it's a wonderful service that they provide for us and for our clients,” says, Brenda Ames, The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army says that with the help of the community, they are able to provide Thanksgiving dinner for those that have nowhere else to go.

"It's the full traditional Thanksgiving meal.  There will be turkey, there will be dressing, there will be vegetables, just everything will be there,” added, Ames.

Lee Smith says he has been attending the Salvation Army dinner for years and looks forward to this years feast.

"It feels good to have a warm dinner for tomorrow,” says, Lee Smith.

 "To see the kids coming in and seeing that pie and the cranberry sauce and that big ol' bird, I mean they just get a kick out of it, and so do we,” says, Linda.

First National Bar is also getting in the spirit and prepping for their annual traditional Thanksgiving spread.

"I think it fills a need, and it's not just the homeless, well it's basically for them, but we are getting more and more people that are really lonely,” says, Cathy Burke, First National Bar.

Byron Quenton has also been a regular at First National's Thanksgiving day dinner and says he likes to attend just to socialize with everybody.

" I mean I live here in Pocatello, I have a place, but there is people that don't have a place to go,” says, Byron Quenton.
