ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department's Family Protection Unit is raising money to host their annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the community. 

Saturday, was their 3rd Annual Turkey Bowl at American Fun Park. Teams of four paid $25 to bowl. All of the proceeds will be used to purchase napkins, forks, and plates for the dinner.

"Often times we run across people who for one reason or another may not have family here,” said Sgt. Kawasaki Barnes, APD's Family Protection Unit. “Or may not be fortunate enough to have a Thanksgiving dinner. It provides us an opportunity to fellowship with them, provide a hot meal and make a friend."

APD's Thanksgiving dinner will be at the Albany Civic Center on November 25th. Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
