Generosity Ensures Thousand Families Will Be Served Thanksgiving Dinner

At least 1,000 Gregg County families will have a full Thanksgiving dinner, thanks to your generosity. 

For the 22nd year, volunteers showed up at Maude Cobb Activity Center Monday night, sorting Thanksgiving turkey and all the fixings for the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Explorer scouts, church and school groups, and just ordinary folks rolled up their sleeves to make sure each box was filled -- all 1,000 of them.

"Even though it may not look like it's organized, it is. I have volunteers that come every year to help me and i could no do it without them," says organizer Betty Horaney.

The meals will be distributed to pre-screened families in need at Maude Cobb Tuesday.
