Damascus Way delivers 500 meals for Thanksgiving

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Damascus Way is helping make sure those who are sick or shut-in around the valley have a happy Thanksgiving.

On Thursday, the shelter for women and children is sending out more than 500 meals for the Meals on Wheels program.

It was a good turnout of volunteers as they used their Thanksgiving to take the meals around to individual homes.

Volunteers say no one should be left without a good meal to eat for the holiday.

"It is just a wonderful experience to give back," said volunteer Doug McLoud. "We have a wonderful city of Columbus for places that give food to the less fortunate. There is no reason for anybody in Columbus GA to go hungry."

This event has been a tradition in Columbus for more than 25 years.

Damascus Way will also serve meals on Christmas morning.
