A man who went out on a lift last week to provide meals for the needy helped get a Thanksgiving food distribution off the ground Friday.

Austin Pendergraft, 27, spent more than 30 hours 30 feet off the ground on a scissor lift to get 300 turkeys donated for charity. On Friday, Pendergraft helped give away more than half of those turkeys through Churches Outreach Network.


Nearly 750 people gathered on Albermarle Avenue for a chance to receive a free Thanksgiving turkey. Crowds grew so large that Churches Outreach Network President Rodney Coles instituted a lottery system.

Good Job!!

This is what it is all about. People helping people instead of the government. It is what created the America I wish we still had.
