The Salvation Army served about 300 people a Thanksgiving Breakfast along with a take-away Turkey Food Basket for 150 families at the local Salvation Army branch in Hackensack, NJ.  

Food was provided in partnership with The Community Food Bank of New Jersey. 

The Salvation Army invited guests from the community, including low income families, parents, children and grandparents, the handicapped, and seniors to a complete hearty traditional Thanksgiving Day Breakfast, including scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon and hash browns.  

Take-away turkeys were also given to families for their Thanksgiving Dinner. 

"We wanted to address families' needs by providing breakfast, the most important meal of the day, together with the essentials for a traditional Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner," said Paul Valverde, Salvation Army Lieutenant, Corps Commanding Officer in Hackensack, N.J.

    Seaside Heights carousel up for auction

    The 82-year-old carousel on the Seaside Heights boardwalk survived Superstorm Sandy and a devastating fire, but it may not survive changing economics. The company that owns the carousel is selling it to make room for new attractions. An auction is planned for fall, with the hope that a buyer will take the entire ride and prevent it from being broken up and sold off piecemeal.
