SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Hundreds of our area military will have meals to feed their families for the holidays, thanks to Operation Homefront.

The organization held its 7th annual "Holiday Meals for Military Program" on Tuesday at Hampton Inn & Suites in Savannah.

Three hundred families pre-registered and two weeks before Christmas, got to pick up free cleaning supplies, two bags of groceries and gift cards.

Santa was on hand as well to offer gifts to the children.

"It's such a big help to our family especially during the holidays when money can be a little tight, it's a huge help,” said Nikki Petulla, a recipient.

"But mostly today is all about the families and saying thank you for their service,” said Operation Homefront Director of Programs Charlotte Merriam.
