MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (AP) - Members and volunteers at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in South Carolina are preparing their third annual Thanksgiving dinner for people who don’t have anywhere else to go.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (https://bit.ly/1kU3D9G) the post spent Wednesday morning chopping vegetables, peeling potatoes and roasting turkeys. Past post commander Paul Roberts is expecting a crowd of 100.

Roberts said the meal, which is funded through donations, is free and open to the public. Most of the past attendees were veterans without close relatives or people who have lost spouses.

The post will serve squash, mashed potatoes, vegetables and stuffing. There will be roasted, smoked and fried turkeys as well as ham.

Dinner is served from noon until 4 p.m. at the VFW post on U.S. 17 Bypass.
