A Cordele organization is encouraging people to donate food to feed families in need for Thanksgiving.

"Concerned Citizens that Care" has organized an annual food drive since 2002. Several businesses have already donated items. This year, the Crisp County Sheriff's office is providing transportation for families to pick up their Thanksgiving meals.

"The Sheriff is going to provide some transportation where some people can come out and pick up their food,” said Johnny Dennis, Concerned Citizens that Care President.

"The families that he's able to feed every year, some of them don't have transportation and they get left out because they can't get there to pick up their box or pick up their turkey,” said Sheriff Billy Hancock.

Each family gets a turkey with their meal. You have until November 24th to donate food. Families will pick up their food boxes on November 26th at Lions Club Park in Cordele. To donate, contact Johnny Dennis at 229-322-8163.
