CHAMPAIGN -- A high school basketball team is trying to make everyone's Thanksgiving a slam dunk! Central Varsity's boys team gave away 100 turkeys Saturday to families in need.

Since Thanksgiving dinner isn't complete with just turkey, they dished out sides as well. The team has been working to collect donations from local businesses and organizations to make it all possible.

Central isn't the only school helping this holiday season. Urbana High School hosts its Thanksgiving dinner, Thursday, from 5 - 8 pm.
