GALVESTON (November 10, 2016) – The “Undisputable Cuz,” as it’s called, is a 76-foot smoker that can cook up to four tons of meat at one time.  And it will be cooking up turkeys on Thanksgiving day at The Salvation Army at 601 51st Street in Galveston in conjunction with The Salvation Army’s first annual Thanksgiving Celebration.  Thank you to Ken’s Towing & Collision Center & Dunn Heat Exchangers for their support in making this happen.


The Salvation Army is hosting its 1st annual Thanksgiving Celebration from 11am-2pm on Thursday, November 24, 2016.  Ken’s Towing & Collision Center has helped rally volunteers (including fire, police, and EMS) and helped make it possible to get the Undisputable Cuz to Galveston for the event.  The celebration aims to provide Thanksgiving meals to approximately 1,000 individuals and will include deliveries to shut-ins on both the island and the mainland.  The event is free and open to the public.


In Galveston County, The Salvation Army houses a 124 bed emergency and transitional shelter for men, women, and families – helping the homeless get back on their feet and reintegrate into society.  As residents prepare for a transition back into stable housing, they learn about job searching, financial responsibility and more.
