"Well without crying, my parents would be ecstatic. One thing that they come for, which I have heard many times is my dad's homemade dressing, and I make their homemade dressing every single year. It is a lot of work but there is just so much good out of it, when I see people face and they say this is papas dressing,” said Ivy.

The owner of the soup kitchen said it is their duty to provide a place of gathering, especially for those who do not have anyone.

"We never ever started a Thanksgiving or Christmas without volunteers. Midlands community has been awesome. They jump in wherever needed. We had the turkeys being delivered, we had everything to be made. Everything is made in kitchen, in house. I make everything fresh and new,” said Ivy.

The soup kitchen wants to remind everyone living in Midland to be thankful and appreciate what they have during this time of year.
