Albany -- South Georgians make sure that needy families will have a happy Thanksgiving meal.

Dozens of volunteers fixed Thanksgiving Banquet Boxes at the St. Claire's Church Neighbors in Need center Tuesday morning.

Everything for a bountiful meal. Turkey, dressing, bread, vegetables,even popcorn and candy, was loaded into boxes.

126 boxes were prepared, to help families in need have a happy Thanksgiving. Director Rosemary Baughman said " Because somebody needs to know that somebody cares. That they are not out there by themselves. And why not, it's our brothers and sisters."

The banquet boxes will be delivered by the volunteers Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday Neighbors in Need feed nearly 300 people their annual Thanksgiving holiday meal at the church.
