Posted: Updated:

Students at Our Lady of Victory are helping area residents in need by bringing some holiday goodies right to their doorstep.

Every year, OLV holds a canned food drive right before Thanksgiving to help out families in the Crossroads.
OLV partnered with local agencies to find families who need Thanksgiving meals this holiday season.

"It's really an awesome feeling just to know that someone is there for us, for a lot of us, that are in need," said Resident Diana Rojas.

With Thanksgiving just days away, OLV 8th grade students delivered all the trimmings for the perfect holiday meal.

On Monday morning, OLV students, were eager to help their community out in any way they can.

"It feels great to give back to residents who have lost so much. Its the best feeling ever,"said OLV Student Hayden Land.

Its been a long three months for Diana Rojas, as she is still trying to rebuild her home after Harvey.
"We have to fix all the walls, which we didn't really get funds for that. So, we are doing it slowly," said Rojas.
This free Thanksgiving meal relieves some stress as she begins preparations for her thanksgiving holiday.
"This is a lot of help you know after Harvey... everything helps out, " said Rojas.
And as for OLV Student Camryn Petru, she is happy to give back to her community.
"I love Thanksgiving and I want to have the best one possible, so I want them to have the same, " said Petru.
Ten families were given a turkey, canned goods, and all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal.
