DES MOINES – It’s the season of giving! And what better way than to deliver a little bit of love to our local vets.

Saturday afternoon the American Legion Riders put together complete Thanksgiving meals for veterans and their families. In total about 90 meals were cooked and packed up. They will be delivered on Sunday. 

Volunteers say they find joy giving back to others this holiday season. Especially when it’s for men and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
