The Small Business Council handed out 1,061 holiday food baskets to families in need as part of SBC Cares 1,000.
"Oh man, it's awesome," food basket recipient Latoya Hill said. "Donations coming out of the blue. We are just so thankful for this right here. It's a blessing."
"We're so grateful for what we have," Tim Mason with the SBC said. "If we can make a special Thanksgiving for another family or people in need, then that's really what it's all about - giving back to the community."
The YWCA received 165 baskets to help women like Hill. She's staying at the center until she can get back on her feet. Her goal, finish college and become a social worker to give back to herself.
"It means a lot, Hill said. "(It) definitely helps with people with fixed incomes."
On Saturday, the SBC had three huge trucks filled with food. They were emptied at 10 local organizations helping families in need. Each basket included holiday food items, plus a $25 grocery gift card.
"I believe right here just giving people a helping hand we don't get that and it's just special," Hill said.
The SBC handed out more than $50,000 dollars worth of food. Next year, the group wants to make a bigger contribution and deliver 2,000 baskets.
