CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As we get closer to Thanksgiving, several organizations here in Charlotte are already giving back to those in need.

The nonprofit group "Common Heart" packaged 1,000 Thanksgiving meals, complete with turkey and all the fixin', for delivery on Saturday.

This is the group's 11th time doing this and organizers told NBC Charlotte it's all about bringing the Thanksgiving spirit to everyone they can.
