JACKSON, Tenn.- Thanksgiving may be nothing more than a memory, but for one group it still has special meaning.

Tuesday, representatives from Gold's Gym presented a check for $7,000 to RIFA. The money was raised during the Turkey Day 5K Run, held on Thanksgiving Day.

Leaders with RIFA said they are truly thankful that the money raised will be able to help so many West Tennesseans in need just in time for the holidays.

"This is the time of the year when we typically go from running in the red, to in the black. youknow with all the donations that we recieve at Christmas time, so the timing is excellent," said Lisa Tillman, executive director of RIFA.

The Regional Interfaith Association helps families in need all across West Tennessee with food and clothing.
