ELKHART — With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, over 500 local families won’t have to worry about buying the main course of their meal.

Volunteers with the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, River of Life Community Church and The Excel Center handed out 550 frozen turkeys to Elkhart families in need Monday afternoon. The giveaway was held outside River of Life Community Church at 2626 Prairie St.
