CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

The Salvation Army in Charlottesville is again getting some help with cooking up a holiday feast.

Members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity were back at the Salvation Army on Ridge Street Wednesday, November 23, preparing more than a dozen turkeys for Thanksgiving. The fraternity members prepped, smoked, and sliced turkeys to be served for the big meal.

This is the second year the Xi Iota Chapter has given the Salvation Army a hand when it comes down to fixing a lot of the turkeys.

Kitchen staff at the Salvation Army say more than 200 people came out for a free meal last Thanksgiving.

The fraternity, which just celebrated its 105th anniversary, is focused on servicing the community: "It's not just Christmas and Thanksgiving, but the people here need help year round," Barnes said.

Fraternity members also put together 35 Thanksgiving baskets for families in the Charlottesville area. They'll return to the Salvation Army to help to serve the meal on Thursday.
