GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — A Greenville non-profit opened its doors to the community for Thanksgiving. Thursday, The Little Willie Center provided free meals to anyone who stopped by the center. For 29 years, the center has cooked turkey, chicken, mac and cheese and all the trimmings to feed the West Greenville community.
Various organizations and volunteers help provide the food to distribute. The center says no matter what happens, they will figure out how to make the meals.
“We do this because we recognize that there is a lot of families who will probably go without during this holiday season, says Tarrick Cox with The Little Willie Center. “We want to at least put a smile on their face and at least help them have something of substance for that one day of their journey.”
The center was created to assist latch-key children. Organizers say it’s important to make sure their families are always well taken care of.
