Local restaurant pays it forward with the true meaning of being thankful

BELLS, Tenn. — The Front Porch Restaurant in Crockett County is giving thanks and paying it forward.

This is the seventh year for the Thanksgiving giveaway at the Front Porch.

Carolyn Reed, the owner of the Front Porch, says this is a great way to give back to the community. Even the employees volunteer to work for free to make this day happen.

“This is a heart beating thing here,” Reed said.

“It fills our hearts some people don’t have family and don’t get a Thanksgiving, so this may be the only Thanksgiving they get,” said Stacy Salzar, who is hosting the giveaway.

“We just want to thank God that we were able to do that this day. That’s the main thing, God made this happen for us today,” Salzar added.

Salzer says they also bring food to shut-ins.
