WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — In downtown Wilmington, some more folks opened their arms to Marines today.
The owner and staff of Flying Pi Kitchen volunteered their time and their food to feed about 30 marines this afternoon.
Lance Corporal Jaidan Pereira said she is grateful there are people out their that are willing to do this for them.
“I’m just grateful that there are still good people out there,” Pereira said. “It’s really nice that they are doing this. They didn’t have to. They just opened their doors for us. It’s really nice. Especially because for most of us, this is our first time away from home, so it’s really comforting.”
The Marines got to enjoy turkey, Eggnog, stuffing, lots of dessert and so much more.
