Farmville Community Comes Together For Free Turkey Dinner

Hundreds of hungry people in Farmville went home with a full stomach Wednesday afternoon.

The Farmville Charitable Organization held its 22nd annual Thanksgiving Feed-A-Thon at the community center in downtown Farmville.

Dozens of volunteers prepared and served up a traditional turkey dinner and all the trimmings for people in need.

With fifteen turkeys and hundreds of pounds of sides to prepare, the two hour luncheon can be a challenge to pull off. Event organizers say they view that challenge as more of a blessing.

The event is made possible each year through the donations of local businesses.

    I'm glad that people are doing this at Thanksgiving, but what about the rest of the year?
