For many people, the holidays are a time to enjoy food with family and friends. But that is not possible for many others, who aren't even sure where their next meal is coming from. To help with that, charity organizations like Big Sunday are holding events to assist those in need.

"We connect people through helping," said David Levinson, founder and executive director of Big Sunday. "The idea is that absolutely everyone has some way that they can help somebody else. We see the world not as haves and have-nots but as haves and have-mores."

On the Thanksgiving Stuffing event, happening Wednesday, Nov. 22.
 

We're going to fill a couple bags full of Thanksgiving food for people who are struggling this holiday season. They're distributed to about 75 different nonprofits and they bring them out to clients that afternoon. And they can enjoy Thanksgiving the next day. We're doing about 15 more different service projects right at the same time in the same place.
