STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - The Old Savannah City Mission has teamed with two Statesboro churches and an army of volunteers to extend their "Day of Great Thanksgiving" meal to Bulloch County on Saturday, November 20. They'll set up a huge tent in the yard between Statesboro Church of God and Eastern Heights Baptist Church. They are still looking for sponsors to help feed 3,000 people. Local organizers say there are more people suffering than many might think.

"In the last year, plenty of people have been displaced from where they live or lost jobs and this meal isn't just for the homeless but for our friends and neighbors that are hurting in these tough times," explained Delia Mobley, one of the Statesboro volunteers.
 
Meals will be served from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. between the two churches on US Highway 80 East.
