TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - This is the season for giving, however one local event was in danger this year of not having enough donations to feed people. 

Thanksgiving is full of many wonderful traditions. For those within the Frenchtown community, one of the biggest is having a Thanksgiving feast from Miss Annie Johnson. 

Johnson, the Director of Project Annie, relies heavily on donations from the community, but this year, the donations were late coming in, meaning less people were looking at not getting meals. 

Luckily, the community showed their support for "Miss Annie", bringing her more than enough food for Thanksgiving, allowing her to take care of her neighbors.  

"The community helps me. Without the community, I can't have it," said Johnson. "It feels good to know you can do, with the help of others, I can't do it by myself, to help feed them and take care of them." 

Those in the community are thankful for this annual feast, but as for Miss Annie, she's simply thankful for the community support and her health.
