Turkey dinners for those in need this Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- A turkey dinner is a Thanksgiving Day tradition, but not everyone can afford the main dish of the holiday feast.

South Hills Church in Kennewick is hoping to put a few more turkeys on people's tables, though.

The church has collected over 50 turkeys so far for 2nd Harvest food bank and they expected a few more to trickle in this evening.

"They aren't just getting a turkey. They're getting a big dose of love that says you matter. So many people out there don't feel like they matter anymore and they're forgotten. We want them to know you're not forgotten," said Anita Paulsen, South Hills Church.

The church kept the turkeys in a large freezer over the past few days.

They were loaded up into the 2nd harvest truck Sunday afternoon.
