BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Hundreds of families in our area who were not expecting to have a Thanksgiving meal now have something to put on the dinner table this holiday.
For the 17th year, Bakersfield North Rotary along with other groups packaged and distributed 300 Thanksgiving boxes for families who live north of the river.
The box includes a traditional Thanksgiving meal to help those families in need.
"It includes everything from a turkey to a pie. everything thing they need to have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner," Dusty Wagoner of Bakersfield North Rotary said.
The surplus of funds raised for the project will go to support Lift Bakersfield's Tuesday night barbecue, which feeds more than 200 homeless and disadvantaged families in Oildale.
