Forget the turkey. At Mountaire Farms, Thanksgiving is all about the chicken.
They kicked off their Thanksgiving for Thousands Food Drive Monday to feed 10,00 families across Delmarva.
"It's our way of giving back to the community, trying to give people in need a helping hand, a good dinner on Thanksgiving," said Phillip Plylar, President of Mountaire Farms.
Nearly 200 volunteers spent the day packing boxes with a Thanksgiving meal for four, complete with sides, dessert, and a Mountaire roaster. They say it's that kind of turnout from the community that allows them to pull it off.
"The same groups that benefit from the outcome other people that are here standing side-by-side, shoulder-to- shoulder with us working," said Zach Evans, Mountaire's Community Relations Manager.
