A local church brought Thanksgiving early to those in need Sunday in West Palm Beach.

"Thanksgiving for the Homeless" took place at Currie Park.

The event put on by "Origin Ministries" served a full course Thanksgivng-style meal to more than 150 people.

Organizers said the effects of the event are beyond just the food.

"What we are trying to do with this food is just try to let them know that there are people out there who care. This is all we are trying to do, just give them some hope so that they can continue on," said organizer Juan Labrador.

Many of those who attended also received jackets and blankets in addition to their meal.
