JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Hundreds of people received free meals at the Trinity Rescue Mission on Thanksgiving.
Tom Sallas received a meal and he’s lived at the shelter for a week.
The organization sits in the heart of downtown Jacksonville near Union and North Jefferson Streets.
The organization sees about 30 faces a day, but for Thanksgiving, more people showed up to give and receive.
“We saw a lot of people fed today. A lot of people came together. A lot of people were blessed,” Tom Sallas said.
First Coast News spoke with another man who lived at the shelter for a couple of months.
Paul Everett said he was blessed by the meal he received.
