LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Hundreds of people in Lenawee County will have a full plate on Thanksgiving thanks to the generosity of the community.

One by one, donated food items went home to Lenawee County families in need. Adrian middle schoolers spent Tuesday packing them up and handing them out, as part of an annual tradition. This year, they made 505 baskets, complete with a turkey, stuffing, rolls and pumpkin pie.

Those in charge hope the event benefits not only those bringing home a basket, but the students who volunteered their time.

"I want them to learn how to reach out and give to others. Some of us are doing very well, so I want them to step forward and say, 'You know what? Let me help somebody,'" said Roy Gonzalez.

Families bringing home a basket say they have one message for everyone who donated and volunteered:

"Thank you and I hope your Thanksgiving is as good as you've made mine," said Taletha Mosse, a Clinton resident.
