Volunteers Help Give Thanksgiving Feast For Those In Need

PONTIAC (WWJ) – There will be no shopping or football for hundreds of Thanksgiving volunteers in Oakland County this weekend.

WWJ’s Marie Osborne joined those volunteers at All Saints Church in Pontiac, otherwise known as Thanksgiving Central.

“It’s just very important to give back to the community … if we can do anything to help, we’re more than happy to,” said Matt Henkles a Quicken Loans volunteer.

Volunteers spent time packing food baskets for needy families around Oakland County.
