Denver's House For All Sinners and Saints, a church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, is behind it.
They make fresh turkey sandwiches and put them in a lunch sack with mayo, mustard, salt & pepper, a pumpkin cookie and stuffing muffin. Each sack has a colorful sticker that says "It sucks you have to work on Thanksgiving. Operation: Turkey Sandwich. Brought to you by House for All Sinners and Saints".
Volunteers go all over town handing them out to anyone they find who is working from convenience store clerks to bartenders, to cops, to bus drivers.
They're looking for help for next week's Operation. They need people who can cook or bake. They also need sandwich assemblers and drivers.
Organizers say they're always pleased to see how grateful people are to have Operation Turkey Sandwich volunteers suddenly show up at their workplace with a Thanksgiving lunch.
