Some different looking school buses will be seen across Daviess County, in an effort to help feed families in need.

The Daviess County Public School district's Family Resource and Youth Service Center is inviting residents to help "Stuff The Turkey" ahead of Thanksgiving this year.

In an effort to get people excited about this year's campaign, school buses will be decorated to look like a turkey.

The decorated buses will then be located at several at both Walmart locations in Owensboro, and the Kroger store at Wesleyan Park Plaza from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Community members, clubs, groups and organizations are invited to stop by with donations of non-perishable food items, along with hygiene and personal care products.

Beyond the need ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, organizers hope donations can be extended to families during the Christmas season and throughout the year.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
