ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The YMCA's 21st Century Program held their first Turkey Bowl at Alice Coachman Elementary School Friday evening.
Students played a football game and enjoyed a cookout.
Organizers wanted to get the students into the holiday spirit.
"Because Thanksgiving is coming up and we want to get them in the spirit of giving back, having fun," said Kiara McConnell, Site Director at Alice Coachman Elementary School. "Plus it's football season so we're just trying to combine everything and wanted to make it a fun event."
Organizers are also planning events for the Christmas Holiday.
