ALICE - The Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department is holding a food drive to provide a Thanksgiving meal for families in need.
Their goal was to get enough food to help 70 families across the county, but they have collected enough food to help even more. And, they are still accepting donations until Tuesday so they can further exceed their goal.
The families that are selected to receive the meal, will have no idea they have been picked until the food is delivered to their door.
The department still needs turkeys with all the fixings to be donated, but they will also accept gift cards for Walmart and HEB to help them purchase more food.
If you would like to help out, you can drop off your donation at the Jim Well's County Sheriff's Department in Alice.
This is the drive's seventh year.
