1,500 needy Jacksonville families will enjoy turkey and all the fixin's this Thanksgiving, thanks to the Salvation Army.

But, unlike past years, recipients had to show they have a job and a place to live in order to qualify for the assistance.

Paul Stasi, Social Services Director for the Salvation Army of Northeast Florida, said the charity also raised the earning cap this year to 150% of the federal poverty level. For a family of four that is a little more than $35,000.

“What we want to do is focus on individuals who are considered the working poor," he said.
