Local fraternity gives needy families Thanksgiving meals

It's not turkey day yet, but a local fraternity took some time tonight to spread some thanksgiving, beyond their family.

The brothers of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, Lambda Iota chapter, have been giving meals to needy families in the communities since they started in Columbus more than 80 years ago.

There were seven families at the house tonight to get a full Thanksgiving spread.

The families tonight received boxes full of turkeys, grapes, vegetables, cake mix and french bread.

One by one, they picked up their meals from the brothers, who came to lend a hand.

The local fraternity tries to make it bigger and better every year.

Howard Galloway, chairman of the chapter, looks forward to helping the area. "Yes, it's a great thing to do, especially giving back to the community. We do our work here in the community and we do it good."

This is the first time Omega Psi Phi has done this in their new house on Steam Mill Road.

They're already planning ahead for next year's Thanksgiving.
