ATLANTA - Hosea helps hosted its 49th Festival of Services on Thanksgiving Day.
It invited thousands in need to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at the Georgia World Congress Center on Thursday.
Volunteers also provided health, cleaning, beautification, and legal services.
For those who couldn't make it, the organization delivered more than 5,000 meals to their homes.
