South Kitsap Helpline staff and volunteers distributed 717 Thanksgiving meals to 2,311 local children, adults and seniors on Monday, according Jennifer Hardison, SK Helpline executive director.

But Hardison said they were expecting about the same number or more on Tuesday. The food was distributed at the National Guard Armory in Port Orchard.

South Kitsap Helpline is still accepting perishable and non-perishable food as well as monetary donations.
