NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of folks enjoyed traditional Thanksgiving meals in North Little Rock on Thursday.
The North Point Dixie Church of Christ joined with the organization 'Say's Stop The Violence' to provide the free dinners for members of the North Dixie community.
"Our goal today is to serve the families, the homeless, those that have the need or those just looking for a place to share a meal with someone," said John Voth with the Union Rescue Mission.
The volunteers came that helped started a couple of months in advance, asking how they could help.
"My mom said she wanted us to do something on Thanksgiving a little different than what we usually do," said volunteer Meredith Lee. "As soon as she said we weren't going to do the normal family thing during the afternoon, I was like 'Let's get after it. Let's go do something,' and so, I started calling around to different in Little Rock and I found Union Rescue Mission and talked to Jared, and they were really happy to have some more volunteers."
They served meals three times the week of Thanksgiving. On Wednesday, they provided turkey and sides at the Willow House in North Little Rock. On Thursday and Friday, they served meals at Hemlock Court and Campus Towers.
