Thanksgiving assistance program helps families in need

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Thanksgiving Giveaway helps in-need families with food and supplies.

The Baton Rouge Association of Minority Firefighters and Gamma Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,  Inc. hosted its 8


annual Thanksgiving Giveaway on Monday.

The firefighters help identify families who have been forced out of their homes due to fires, and the sorority identifies in-need families from the ERB Parish school system.

When identified, families received thanksgiving care packages that include items like turkey, canned foods, butter, eggs, seasonings and desserts. There is enough in the boxes to not only feed the family for Thanksgiving, but a few extra days after.
