Officials said they expect to feed nearly 800 families minimum, but they know more than that will show up.



Executive Director Kelly Lilles said they were able to collect 1,500 turkeys from the community, with an original goal of 1,200. Volunteers will be handing out tickets to families waiting in line so they can receive their holiday box.

Lilles said that 75-percent of their budget comes from private donations and could always use food donations as well.
