For the next three weeks, Wellington officials are collecting food items to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

Donations can be made at the Village municipal Complex, Village Park, Ultima Fitness, Lake Wellington Professional Centre and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office, District 8 Substation.

Donations will be collected through November 18, 2015 and will go directly to local families in need.

If you wish to sponsor the event, you can call Meridith Tuckwood, senior services specialist at 561-753-2476.
