According to The Connection Newspapers, "Given the pandemic last year, we were limited and only able to distribute gift cards. This year, we are back in action, with real, nutritious food going out to the people who need it,” said Walter Smiley, Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity and event organizer. “We have been doing this a long time and each year the need grows. We are appreciative of all the people who come together to donate time and money to make this happen."

As per The Connection Newspapers, "Food boxes featured frozen turkeys, fresh vegetables, stuffing mix, ground turkey and gift cards. Project Give Back partnered with local community volunteers and organizations to identify local families in need and bring the food to them. The organization also packed two U-Hauls full of food kits and made personal deliveries."
