'Day of Great Thanksgiving' preparations

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Preps are underway for an early Thanksgiving feast in Savannah.

Volunteers from all over our area are pitching in, preparing food for the Old Savanah City Mission's 18th annual "Day of Great Thanksgiving" this Saturday in Forsyth Park.

Thousands of people in need will share a delicious smoked turkey dinner prepared and served by more than 500 volunteers.

"We give and volunteer ourselves because that's what Christ did and that's what Jesus continues to do. He gave us His life. It's the least we can do, be like him," said Brooke Smith, Interact Club, Pinewood Christian Academy.

More than 1,000 dinners will also be delivered to those - who for some reason - are not able to come to Forsyth Park.
