Teachers, parents and students from Mount Mourne Middle School met at N.B. Mills Friday to unload 80 baskets full of food for some families’ Thanksgiving meals.

Baskets were full of stuffing, sides and even household products like laundry detergent.

Other schools have also received these baskets, including Statesville middle and high schools.

The effort ensures 80 families have a meal on Thanksgiving, and the children aren’t hungry throughout the days off of school.
