Imagine not having the means to have your own Thanksgiving dinner.

Today, around the coastal bend, hundreds of homeless people won't have to worry about that.

Local homeless shelters such as Mission 911 and the Salvation Army will be serving Thanksgiving meals to hundreds of homeless people.

Dozens of volunteers are spending part of their holiday to help feed those in need.

The homeless population will be getting a full-course meal, from the turkey to the mashed potatoes to the pies.

The Salvation Army said it's expecting crowds of up to 500 people.

This meal is just one reason to be thankful today.

I'll be visiting a few of these shelters, and I'll have the full story tonight on KRIS 6 News.
