A few local organizations are putting others before their own family this Thanksgiving.

More than 30 volunteers spent their morning preparing meals for people in need at Vineyard Church.

From the youngsters to adults...we're all thankful for something

"I think it's good to give thanks on Thanksgiving," Volunteer Ty Stone said.

"it means giving and caring about other people like Christ taught," Jim Childs said.

Thanksgiving also revolves around food...

“I love to eat," Volunteer Kisan Patel said.

"Well at my grandma's she makes sausages and I love them," Stone said.

Living Hope Community Center in Dothan is making sure those who might not have a Thanksgiving feast have something to be thankful for today, a full plate of food.

"We're just so grateful that we can feed people in the community that need a Thanksgiving meal. We don't believe anybody should go hungry on thanksgiving," Living Hope Coordinator Michelle Michel said.

Volunteers made sure 250 people didn't leave empty-handed

"So they can have a good day and have their best food that they can have," Stone said.

The to-go meals include a full spread of Thanksgiving classics.

"It was turkey, dressing with cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie and a roll - it was delicious," Childs said.

Childs says it was about more than the meal.

"The people here at living hope care about others the way they do themselves and that's the way everyone should do," Childs said.

"Happy Thanksgiving and have a great day," Stone said.

Living Hope Community Center does outreach year-long.

Next month they'll have Santa deliver presents to kids in need.
