MINNEAPOLIS - While most of us were sleeping this Thanksgiving morning, one group was already in the kitchen, cooking a hot meal.
They're volunteers with Threshold to New Life, a 501c3 charity that works with 2.4 Ministries to help people experiencing gaps in their life. The goal is to prevent them from becoming homeless.
Every morning, the volunteers serve breakfast at the Salvation Army's Harbor Light Center in Minneapolis. On Thanksgiving Day, those who come get more than a meal.
Threshold to New Life planned to distribute 125 personal care kits from 5:30-6:30 a.m. Each kit includes a pair of socks. Bombas, the manufacturer, donated another 1,000 pairs, which Threshold to New Life plans to provide over the course of the winter.
Richard Bahr founded the organization with his wife, Carla. This Thanksgiving, Bahr comes to the breakfast with his new book, Those People.
He plans to share some of the stories in his book, which features a collection of stories about some of the people he has encountered over the years.
