NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Turkeys for Thanksgiving are something a lot of us may take for granted.

More than 100 people came together to pack 500 turkey dinner boxes for families struggling with hunger. Volunteers with Mount Chesapeake and Mount Elizabeth City carpooled across Hampton Roads and North Carolina to deliver the meals.

It was a total surprise for families receiving the food, and It took around $18,000 to stuff all the boxes.
