Students of Tallahassee Community College are giving back to the Tallahassee community in light of Turkey Day.

They brought donations for their "Project Annie" contribution Wednesday morning.

Students from TCC's Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy gave the donations in French town Wednesday morning.

TCC faculty members say the Basic Recruit class chooses one community project a year to participate in, and this year they chose to help out Annie Johnson.

Every year Johnson cooks a dinner for those in need to make sure everyone has a holiday feast.

Students and faculty unloaded turkeys, hams and canned foods in time for Annie to prepare for the big day.

"We won't be there when she actually serves the food, but we will know when we're sitting with our families, work, or wherever we are on Thanksgiving Day, that we helped somebody less fortunate than we," said Corrections Coordinator, Andrea Blalcok.

Organizers say this year's project has been one of the most rewarding experiences.

Miss Annie says she will work all night on the feast.

She will begin distributing the goodies on Thanksgiving morning at 11 o'clock.
