Thanksgiving is traditionally a time for family gatherings and counting blessings. But it is also a reminder that many of our friends and neighbors struggle to provide even the basic essentials for their own loved ones. This year, Speedway Children's Charities hopes to make the holidays a little brighter and warmer for people on New Hampshire's Seacoast.

On Tuesday, SCC delivered a tractor trailer packed with approximately 20,000 pounds of food in Portsmouth, to be distributed to families in need. SCC partnered with Operation Blessing and Seacoast Adopt-A-Block to help ensure that every family has a joyous Thanksgiving holiday this year. The food and personal care products will supply 400 families of four people for one week.
