The Resource Center for Community Action (RCCA) hosted its Thanksgiving mobile food pantry distribution on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 1400 Parker Road, Conyers. Volunteers helped pass out food boxes during the half-day give away. Food also as given away at Mayor’s Park in Lovejoy, Georgia on Nov. 7, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year marked the second year that RCCA has held the Community Thanksgiving giveaways at two locations.
RCCA’s free giveaway was one of several efforts to assist those in need in the local area. The Unique Corvettes Club also pitched in to assist 50 needy families at Pine Street Elementary School in Rockdale County. The club provided 50 turkeys to students from needy homes, said Tommy Plummer, who is a member of the club. Plummer also made sure juveniles at the county’s detention center received a pre-Thanksgiving Day meal with all of the trimmings. The Rockdale NAACP partnered on the effort.
