Valley soldiers, families in need get help for the holidays

Military families lined the door this morning at the 52nd Street Armory for the 9th Annual Turkey's for Troops event.

"You'd be surprised how little just a little bit of food can go a long way when you're struggling," one person said.

Inside, hundreds of pounds of food awaited them.

"It's such an honor, they have sacrificed so much and so many of them are not paid real well and it's terrible to see some of them can't afford a Thanksgiving holiday, so we want to make sure that that does not happen," Eddie Edwin Rosario said.

Eddie says receiving this food box today saves him hundreds of dollars, which can now go toward his two kids.

"Really important, I mean you know, financial is not all there, doing the best I can to support these two, you know, so we're looking forward to a good Thanksgiving," he said.

His kids are looking forward to the big meal.

"We just hang out and we do a big feast and we cook a lot," they said.

Families picked up non-perishable and perishable foods, gift cards of $20 and personal care items all for no cost.

"So far, we got cereal, rice, apple filling, apple sauce," one family said.

Arizona Heroes to Hometowns serves wounded, deployed and active military families of all branches in hopes of making their holidays a little more special.

"It's going to be great, I'm looking forward to it now," Eddie said.

And so are his kids, more specifically, looking forward to eating their favorite Thanksgiving.
