Volunteers with the Salvation Army Concord Corps, a group that sends folks to help feed people at disaster scenes and major public events, are headed Friday to Denver, where they will make up part of the emergency preparedness team at the Democratic National Convention.

I’ve written a news story for tomorrow’s front page but I took a time to shoot a short video of Salvation Army Major Clayton Gardner and the two volunteers who will drive their kitchen-on-wheels, also called a canteen, 1200 miles to Denver. (The canteen is in the video behind Gardner and the volunteers.)

Standing in the video, from left to right, is Concord residents Richard Lueck and John Primus, and Gardner.
