Movie Theater Donates Thanksgiving Meals

Eau Claire
Nov 21, 2004

One-hundred families in the Chippewa Valley have their Thanksgiving turkey a few days early thanks to an Eau Claire movie theater. Instead of the usual popcorn and soda, London Square Cinema is serving up turkeys, cranberries and pumpkin pie. 100 families signed up with the Salavation Army to recieve the meals. The food was delivered early Sunday morning by theater employees. The theater's manager says she wants to bring the community more than just movies. "Me and my co-workers can get together and help the community," says Jen Steinke of London Square Cinema. "It's a good time to just goof-off while we're doing something helpful."

The Salvation Army says the need for food is growing in the area. "Our weekly food basket, even our daily food baskets, used to be just a year ago when we arrived, was anywhere from ten to 15 boxes a day," says Salvation Army's Roger Windell. "Now it's anywhere from 20 to 25 a day. So the need is going up." London Square Cinema says it will be there to help for years to come.
