Local Organization Hands Out Thanksgiving Meal to the Needy

Posted: Updated:

On Saturday, a local non-profit organization City Impact passed out hot meals to the needy in Wichita Falls. The organization's motto is to engage, equip and empower the at-risk populations in Texoma.

"We packed up everything, loaded it up and took it out to all the people who normally come. We had a lot of extra food so we went to the motels, into the streets, parks and passed out Thanksgiving feasts to anyone that has a need and was hungry," said Director of City Impact Bob Johnson.

The organization has been doing this for 6 years. The dinner is served every Friday night.

For Thanksgiving and Christmas, they feed anywhere from 100 to 200 people.
