ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - An Asheville nonprofit has distributed 1,280 food bags to people in need for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Local media outlets report that the food bags were distributed Wednesday by Eblen Charities in an event known as “Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving.” Each bag contained a turkey, fixings and several sides, and could feed 10 to 14 people.

Eblen Charities Executive Director William Murdock says the event combines the efforts and funds of various community groups to support families who otherwise might be facing an empty table on Thanksgiving Day. The event was started by NBA player Brad Daughtery who would buy and deliver 50 turkeys for families in need.
