This complimentary dinner was open to the public and also included music, kids’ activities, haircuts and more.

The Salvation Army and Phoenix Convention Center also prepared around 2,200 meals for people who are homebound and another 1,200 for Salvation Army Corps locations across metro Phoenix.

"Events like this cannot happen without the generosity of our corporate partners and community donors,” added Maj. Dihle. “We are extremely grateful for how people come together to help those in need.”
