DES MOINES, Iowa — Some metro families are feeling the generosity of Iowans as they received a Thanksgiving meal a few days early.

Families picked up the meals at First Christian Church in Des Moines Sunday night.

A group of Des Moines entrepreneurs paired with Price Choppers grocery and Dowling Catholic High School to prepare and serve the meals.

“I would honestly say the reason my brother and I wanted to do this is because….it isn’t about our business, it isn’t about Price Chopper, it isn’t about Dowling, it’s about helping the community,” said one entrepreneur.

Fifty-two hams and side dishes were donated.
