Dozens of seniors received hot Thanksgiving style meals Saturday, delivered straight to their door.

The New Jerusalem Baptist Church helps out with meals on wheels, delivering to about 50 seniors a week, but this week's delivery had a Thanksgiving twist.

Members from the church pack into a van and go door to door bringing the seniors a hot plate of food, helping those who may not be able to make it out on their own.

Organizers say they want area seniors to know they're thinking of them during the holidays.

“Sometimes either members can't get to their families or families can't get to them, sometimes it's just a neighbor reaching out saying hey I care about you, I love you and sometimes what should be a joyous time and be not so happy if you don't have people around you, so by us reaching out maybe we can be that person,” says Adolphus Sims with The New Jerusalem Baptist Church.

After they delivered meals they served people back at their church from noon until two.
