Salvation Army asking for pie donations

The Salvation Army needs pies – 800 of them.

The organization is asking holiday grocery shoppers to buy an extra pie for those having dinner at their Community Holiday Dinners Christmas Day.

Organizers said they plan to feed thousands at the annual event, held at six locations around El Paso County.

Pies can be brought to 908 Yuma St. in Colorado Springs Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
