SALT LAKE CITY – Some of Utah’s homeless received a special visit from Governor Gary Herbert on Wednesday.

Herbert and his family served a Thanksgiving feast to the homeless at the Salt Lake Rescue Mission, a tradition the governor and his wife have been keeping since being elected into office in 2009.

“We have so much to be thankful for. It really just reminds us that we are very blessed people and our families are blessed, our state is blessed, but there are still people out there that need a little helping hand,” Herbert said.

The mission also handed out hygiene kits, warm clothes, haircuts and a free flu shot.
