OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Holidays are all about spending time with loved ones. Sharing a laughter or two. But, one part often missing for families is access to a good meal.

The Heartland Hope Mission assists families in need and this year they are aiming to make sure every family has a nutritious meal this Thanksgiving.

Sunday, they were at metro Hy-Vee locations collecting donations, that will bring a smile to people's faces.

This year they hope to raise $20,000 to help as many people. They say they're seeing an increase in food assistance. That's why they hope families can enjoy a good meal without any worry.

"When you get into the holiday season, Thanksgiving meals are really expensive. A lot of families just don't have that extra money in their budget. Without the generosity of the community, they wouldn't be able to have a Thanksgiving meal with the Turkey or Ham... so it really is the generosity of the community," said Pastor Chelsea Salifou, CEO of Heartland Hope Mission.
