Open Doors in Norwalk helped families ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday by distributing about 200 turkey dinner baskets at the Open Doors Smillow Life Center.
Numerous volunteers were an essential part in the success of the event.
Donations from the community made the distribution possible.
Organizers of the event expressed that it is important to help families in need.
"Thanksgiving is always such a happy holiday and it's such a hard time, food costs are really going up, people are really struggling to put together the meal, so that's why we're so excited to be able to do this today and give people what they need to have a really Happy Thanksgiving," said Michele Conderino, Executive Director of Open Doors
