‘Operation: Turkey Sandwich’ Planning to Feed People Who are Stuck Working

KDVR Denver – Many employees will be forced to miss Thanksgiving dinner this year, as more and more retailers elect to stay open for the holiday. Now one Denver church is determined to give them a taste of what they will be missing.

The House for all Sinners and Saints Lutheran Church is organizing volunteers for Operation Turkey Sandwich, with the mission of feeding people who are stuck working.

“This will be complete chaos tomorrow,” said Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber, pointing to the empty space inside St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Denver, where Operation Turkey Sandwich will take place. “We’ll probably have about 50 turkeys that will be stripped down.”

The volunteers plan to make more than a thousand sandwiches, stuffing muffins and pumpkin cookies, in order to give people a taste of Thanksgiving. Bolz-Weber says the reward can be seen on the employees’ faces.
