Group collects food for families in need this Thanksgiving
The Madison Marine Homecrest Civic Association is holding a food drive to make sure every family has something to eat on Thanksgiving.
The group set up a table outside Key Food supermarket in Gerritsen Beach telling customers even small contributions go a long way.
Organizers say they have been collecting nonperishable items every year for the past five years.
They say the food all goes to Our Lady of Refuge Church, where it will be distributed to families in the neighborhood.
Organizers say they're also collecting money to help buy turkeys for those who won't have any this Thanksgiving.
