CRESTVIEW — The Wild Olive and Sorabal will serve a full Thanksgiving meal, free of charge, for residents spending the holiday alone.

The Wild Olive — with Mosaic Church of Crestview's assistance, and donations from area businesses — will provide a traditional meal with turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes and other sides.

"We wanted to extend our hands and our hearts to other people, so they could be a part of our family," restaurant co-owner Susan McDuffie said. "It's a way to show the community the love of (Jesus) Christ."

"It's not just for low-income people," she said. "There are military (service members) here, and their families are hundreds of miles away."

Susan and Mike McDuffie attend Mosaic, where many families have loved ones away on duty, the Rev. James Ross said.

Event organizers encourage interested parties to RSVP prior to the event so they can prepare enough food. Contact or call the Wild Olive, 682-4455, to do so.

Sorabal, the Korean and sushi restaurant, will serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, dressing, green beans, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole and desserts.
