Low income single parents get special Thanksgiving meal

Single parents who attend college at Allan Hancock, in Santa Maria, have an extra reason to be thankful this holiday.
Volunteers and staff with the school's CARE program handed out more than 70 thanksgiving meals, to lower income families who would likely have gone without this Thanksgiving.
CARE employee, Kiri Villa says, "CARE is a program that helps single students meet and maintain their goal, educationally. I think right now we have about 170 CARE students."
More than 250 people from 73 families received Thanksgiving meals, trimmings and all.
This is the first year that CARE has organized such an event.
The organization is hoping to make it a holiday tradition.
