Nomad Alliance serves Thanksgiving meal to unsheltered Utahns

Nov 29, 2021, 12:28 AM

SALT LAKE CITY — A group of volunteers worked together to serve a sit-down Thanksgiving meal to dozens of homeless Utahns Sunday afternoon.

The Nomad Alliance brought turkey, potatoes, pie, and all the extras.

Sunday’s event was an extra part to the group’s already planned donation of supplies, like clothing, shoes, blankets and more — something they do every two weeks.

“These are just human beings who are going through a really difficult time and it came happen to any one of us. Especially during COVID, people are treated as even more disease, people are afraid of even looking at these beautiful humans, so we want to change that paradigm,” said Kseiya Kniazeva, executive director of Nomad Alliance.
