A local elementary school helped those in need just in time for Thanksgiving.

Fern Elementary school was busy today as students, volunteers and the Torrance Del Amo Rotary Club gave out complete Thanksgiving meals for families in the Torrance Unified School District. Nearly 150 meals that included a turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and vegetables were distributed. Volunteers from various schools came out to pick up the meals for the families in need.

The meals are offered to people who may need a helping hand during the holidays. School officials work to make sure these families are made aware of this annual event.
