Sharing a meal, lifting spirits: Dodd’s Campbell River’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner

Many people in need of a hand or simply a lift of their spirits received a Thanksgiving dinner Friday thanks to Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress in Campbell River.

The retailer held its second annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Salvation Army Lighthouse Community Kitchen on Oct. 5 and offered two sittings of traditional turkey Thanksgiving dinner to whomever needed it. The event motto is “Share a meal. Lift your spirits. Feed your soul.”

Dodds staff and Salvation Army volunteers prepared and served the delicious meal.
