Event organizer, Paul Olinger said, "We live in an area that's very affluent in a lot of ways and yet so many people don't realize there's so much need in our community. There could be older, elderly people that are shut in that don't have family here. There could be people that are on limited income that won't have a thanksgiving meal if it weren't for this."
On Wednesday, members of the church packaged more than 2,200 meals to make sure those in need don't go hungry this thanksgiving.
"It can be an eye-opening experience and it just makes you realize how blessed we are as people."
With thousands of meals made, volunteers were reminded to count their blessings.
"We want to do it in a way that anybody would be proud of."
