Don’t just celebrate Thanksgiving with a huge meal, the Macy’s parade and an afternoon snooze on the couch.

The Salvation Army is seeking volunteers to help serve homemade turkey dinners to approximately 400 Suffolk residents who probably wouldn’t otherwise celebrate the day, said Capt. David May, corps officer.
