Ethan Partington, a junior at Newman Central Catholic High School, gets ready to load up some turkeys Tuesday for a family during the Coloma and Sterling townships’ annual Thanksgiving meal distribution at the Sterling Township garage. Volunteers from Newman, Sterling and Rock Falls high schools and Self Help Enterprises helped pack and distribute the meals. People were lining up all the way down Griswold Avenue as they made their way to the makeshift drive-thru for the meals that were given to people who needed a little help for the holidays. More than a thousand meals were distributed during the annual giveaway.
