For the fourth year in a row, the Crook County Kids Club is inviting the community to a free Thanksgiving dinner this week. Co-Chair Neva McPherson says it started as a big "thank you" to the community for helping the kids.  "Originally it was a thank you to the community for helping get the kids club on their feet. Because it's sponsored by the Kids Club of Prineville. So it was that idea and it's just grown from there." McPherson says there are a lot of community businesses helping put the feast on. Last year they served about 400 Thanksgiving dinners of ham, turkey and all the fixins'. This year, the dinner is at Carey Foster Hall this Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. McPherson says they are asking for donations: canned goods will go to St. Vincent de Paul's and money will help pay for the Kids Center.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
