With Thanksgiving less than a week away, it's easy to get caught up in holiday to-do lists.
But one group makes those who might not be able to afford a hot meal a top priority.
Hundreds worked together to give families a Thanksgiving meal all their own.
Filling your cart with all the holiday trimmings costs a pretty penny.
And for nearly 2,000 people who benefited from New Hope International's Thanksgiving dinner giveaway, the meal might otherwise have been too expensive.
"My thing is, somebody got turkeys, somebody got potatoes, if we put them together everybody can eat," says Ronicia Rome.
Single mom Ronicia Rome says she couldn't afford to splurge on a turkey dinner for her and her son.
"You know, you can't afford it, but just for him to be able to look around and say, 'We have a turkey,'" she says.
That's where more than 300 volunteers stepped in.
