This week, we're celebrating Thanksgiving, from the spirit of giving to the traditions of school and family.
Tuesday, to give thanks for their own success in music, members of 3 Keys Choice gave free canned vegetables, turkey and other food to those in need in Batesburg-Leesville.
"We're being thankful for all our blessings," said Tony Thomas,one founder of the gospel singing group.
Those helped were thankful as well.
"It is a help, gracious yes," said recipient Stan Williams, an 83-year-old retired factory worker.
From individuals with generous hearts to church and community organizations, many step forward to provide turkeys or meals on Thanksgiving to those in need.
In Batesburg-Leesville, a free meal will be served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today at the American Legion Hut, 200 S. Hendrix St. The gathering is sponsored by community groups.
