Help provide Thanksgiving food for others

If you are spending Thanksgiving at a friend or family member’s home this year or have a little extra time and money, then a couple of North Georgia charities have an idea for you. Local charities are accepting monetary donations as well as time and food products to feed the needy, elderly and lonely this holiday. “If you are not having to foot the bill this year, then calculate the cost of a Thanksgiving meal — and in the 2013 market I believe it is under $50 — and consider donating that $50 to the food bank,” said Kay Blackstock, executive director of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank.
