Each year Porter Regional Hospital gives back to their associates for the holidays. In particular, for Thanksgiving, they give away free turkeys for their holiday dinner. We were on the scene at Porter Regional Hospital and Portage Hospital to talk to some of Porter's turkey giveaway volunteers about why they like to be a part of the two day event, how it's one way that Porter cares, and how some giveaway their free turkeys to families who need it the most.

For the Duneland YMCA their community isn't just one they live in - it's one they've truly been a part of for decades. As a organization that has helped so many in the Duneland area, we got some familiar faces of the YMCA together to help them give thanks to the Duneland Y and every person that has allowed it strive and grow for so many years.
In a few weeks there will be a special event happening at Merrillville's Star Plaza - and we brought in some important people to talk about it.
