A Marshalltown woman spent Thanksgiving honoring her brother by helping to feed her community. Laura Thomas cooked enough Thanksgiving meals to serve more than 50 Iowans in need of a hot meal. She cooked the meals in memory of her late brother, Wade Baker, who would have turned 50 this year. Baker, an Army veteran who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and a traumatic brain injury, died by suicide in 2015. KCCI’s Marcus McIntosh shares Thomas’ story of holiday generosity.
