Albany-- Just in time for Thanksgiving, a local church organization lends a helping hand to the community.

The I-Can Center held it's Fourth Annual Pre-Thanksgiving Banquet. It's a way for the center to reach out to the community. In a matter of two hours, over 100 turkeys and hams were given away to members of the community. Dr. Oscar Benton of The I-Can Center also issued the community a challenge.

"My challenge to the community today was to take responsibility for our children, our communities and ourselves," says Dr. Benton.

Next month the center also plans to help families for Christmas. They'll be collecting toys for kids. To help out or donate, call 229-435-3355.
