COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - With this start of the Thanksgiving holiday week, plenty of local groups are stepping up to make sure local families have what they need to have a Happy Thanksgiving.
The Lambda Iota Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity gave away boxes of food to about ten families Monday evening in Columbus.
This event is one of the many charitable acts performed by the fraternity throughout the year. This is the tenth year they have given out the food boxes and they hope to keep it going for years to come.
"It can help someone," said Charles Patrick with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. "Some needy family out there needs our help and we figure by giving these Thanksgiving boxes they can enjoy a good holiday," Patrick said.
Event coordinators say it took weeks of preparations to get everything together for the boxes.
