Pendleton - Several southern Madison County churches banded together to help bring Thanksgiving meals to dozens of needy families in the area.
Sponsored by non-profit Proclaim, a missions group that works with nearly all the churches in the community, Operation Thanksgiving prepared close to 200 meals for those without last Thursday.
“Oh, gosh. We had around 100 volunteers that day,” event organizer Brad Marks said. “Just about all the churches in South Madison County had someone there.”
