SCRANTON -- The Family to Family Thanksgiving food basket giveaway is just two days away, and the organization in Lackawanna County only has about $30,000 of its $90,000 goal.

Organizers said money is desperately needed to feed more than 3,300 families on Thanksgiving.

"We were nervous last year because we ended up running out of food, so we ordered some extra food this year because we certainly don't want anyone to go without a dinner. So, our bill is a little bit higher because we wanted to make sure we could take care of everybody," said organizer Linda Robeson.

In addition to food, donated coats will be handed out Wednesday morning at the Scranton Cultural Center.
