Turkeys for the Needy

Five hundred Heartland families will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a feast from generous neighbors.

A No Frills parking lot at 42nd and G served as the staging ground Tuesday as Lawyers Against Hunger game away 500 turkeys.

No Frills provided the birds at cost and the Food Bank partnered-up to help identify the people in need of some Thanksgiving help.

The law firm of Inserra and Kelly provided the money and the volunteers.

Craig Kelly, with Lawyers Against Hunger, said, "We practice in both Nebraska and Iowa and it's been so great to us that we just decided that last year that if we could give something back every year to the community for supporting our law firm it's a great thing to do."

Kelly says he hopes other area law firms will join in the effort next year.
