ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Men struggling with alcohol and drug addictions will get to enjoy a thanksgiving feast, thanks to the generosity of teenagers.

The boys and girls soccer teams at Deerfield-Windsor donated about 100 pounds of Boston butt to The Anchorage Wednesday. The team cooked the meat as part of a fundraiser. What they had leftover, they decided to donate.

"Kind of the best of both worlds. We wanted to get some money and we had some left, so we decided to give some away," said Senior Seth Allen.

Coach Tony Voyles said, "We're trying to give back to the community and let other people have the things that we're able to have right now that may be struggling for some reason or another."

 "This is an awesome opportunity for them to see that this community cares about them as they struggle to get past their addiction of drugs and alcohol here at the anchorage," Anchorage CEO Kenneth Phillips said.

The anchorage currently has 55 residents in treatment programs. They rely on donations from the community to help keep costs down.
