Thanksgiving comes early for more than 100 Raleigh residents

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Thanksgiving came early for more than 100 Raleigh residents Friday morning thanks to God's Helpers of Raleigh.

Volunteers worked through the morning to prepare lunch.

Robert Dear, president of God's Helpers of Raleigh, said most of the recipients are homeless, adding the soup kitchen estimates they'd serve about 150 people.

God's Helpers of Raleigh is always seeking donations that are not only monetary but involve volunteers as well.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
