LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Dozens of Angelina County families will have a better holiday thanks to the generosity of East Texans.

Lockheed Martin unloaded 40 baskets of food this morning at Love In The Name of Christ.

For the third year, company employees donated all of the food and made the baskets.

The baskets have canned hams, vegetables, stuffing, and everything to make a Thanksgiving meal.

Love INC said the families receiving the food are not getting help anywhere else.

"It always is gratifying to help the community," said Lockheed Martin employee Mark Youngblood. "We help as much as we can, we're helping a lot of different organizations, but around the holidays is always the best."

The baskets will be gone by Tuesday afternoon.

Lockheed Martin also donated baskets to the Angelina County Senior Citizens Center.
