CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA)–Center of Hope Church is giving away food for Thanksgiving for families in need. They’re giving out 75 to 100 baskets. People will get everything they need to put together a Thanksgiving meal including a turkey, side dishes, and drinks. The pastor says they give out food to the community throughout the year, and he has noticed a large need, especially this year. They want to be sure families aren’t concerned about how they will eat for the holiday.
