The Grovetown Department of Public Safety is looking for people to help.
Each Thanksgiving, Grovetown police officers, with Marvin United Methodist Church and United We Care, serve turkey dinners to needy families in the Grovetown area.
But there's a problem. Public safety has more meals than there are people to serve them to.
"We have around 100 people signed up so far, but we have around 200 meals," said Laura McManus, a corporal with Grovetown public safety.
McManus said the department is looking for 100 more people who live inside the Grovetown fire district to serve on Turkey Day.
United We Care, a Grovetown-based food bank, and public safety began collecting donations of turkeys and other food items last month.
"Each year, volunteers at Marvin Methodist Church prepare the meals, and then we pick them up," McManus said. "Then we take them and deliver them to people in Grovetown who would go without a good Thanksgiving meal otherwise."
Anyone interested in being added to the list of Thanksgiving meal recipients can call the Grovetown Department of Public Safety at 863-1212.
