URBANA -- All the fixin's for a traditional Thanksgiving meal are going out to those in need. It's called the Big Give. Each year, Stone Creek Church gives away turkeys and holiday food. This year, the number grew to 1,000. The line wrapped around the back of the church.

People were all there to collect hundreds of turkeys the church was able to get through fundraising. The effort started seven years ago. Organizers say, as the need has grown, so have their efforts. Meijer, in Urbana, partnered with the church to put on the event.
