Boys & Girls Club delivers meals to homeless kids

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

It was a classic Thanksgiving dinner given out to children in need.

"Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and sweet potatoes," said Yvonne Hollins, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Central Pennsylvania.

It was prepared on a large scale for homeless children. All of the food was donated and it was stirred, scooped and packaged for the needy.

Volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club in Harrisburg spent their Saturday cooking and packing several hundred meals for less fortunate Harrisburg School District students and their families.

The meals were delivered directly to area families.

"We're very thankful because many times out families don't get a hot meal on the weekends, so a lot of our students get a hot meal at school," said Laura Bloss, homeless coordinator of the Harrisburg School District.
