WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Thanksgiving kicked off early for some deserving families Saturday afternoon. 

Operation Homefront gave away Thanksgiving meals to enlisted military families. 

This is an annual event through the Holiday Meals For Military program. 

A turkey and several side items were handed out by volunteers. 

A San Antonio Shoemakers semi-truck had all the donations inside. 

Newschannel 6 spoke with a volunteer who said his family and the company he works for enjoy participating in this event. 

"This is just something that we're proud to do. It is part of our culture. We feel so honored to assist our military families at this time of year and we're so grateful for their service," Mark Foster of SAS said. 

250 meals were given out to families in Wichita Falls. 

Organizers said this is the second year Operation Homefront has taken part in this event for military families in our area.
