Free turkey trimmings for the needy

November 8, 2006

Albany - - A non-profit organization is making sure people in need have the things they need to prepare Thanksgiving dinners for their families. 

Love thy Neighbor, Incorporated gave out turkeys and canned goods Wednesday to hundreds of people.

Many stood in line for hours to get their share. Love thy Neighbor gave out 200 turkeys and food baskets. Once a month, they also giveaway clothing and knick knacks for the home.  

"I think it's a blessing just to have somewhere you can come and get assistance at. They are very nice and loveable people. I come here once a month," says recipient Deborah Nelson.

Love thy Neighbor is sponsored by Methodist churches in the area.

They've been doing this for the past three years.
