GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- While many are spending the holiday with their loved ones, not everyone is able to take the day off.

Local organization, cityServe Green Bay, celebrates its 2nd annual Operation: Turkey Bags by delivering 400 bag lunches to workers on Thanksgiving day.

"We thought wouldn't it be cool if we drove around town and unexpectedly, unplanned, unannounced just show up with a lunch and say hey, here's a homemade turkey lunch, you know, we hope it makes you feel connected or loved or cared about because we're sorry you had to work today," said Scott Eastman, from cityServe.

More than 200 volunteers helped to deliver 400 bagged lunches to make this second annual event a huge success.

cityServe stopped by places like police departments, fire stations, gas stations, and some convenience stores to give their homemade lunches to the workers inside. This event was meant for people pulling extra hours or standing ready at urgent care and rescue facilities.

These lunches included fresh roasted turkey sandwiches, stuffing muffins, pumpkin cookies, apples and, of course, cranberry sauce.

cityServe's other events include "School Care Day" taking place in August and sees volunteers from many church communities work with teachers at Green Bay Area Public Schools to help them prepare their classrooms for the upcoming school year. Also "Foster Care Day" which collects items for new foster families each year.
