"Perfect for the whole family to gather and watch this Thanksgiving holiday, Thank You, America! shines a light on the American spirit of gratitude," a news release said. "From a sanitation worker, who, along with his wife, founded a food pantry that feeds countless of homeless people to a couple who have foster parented more than 90 children throughout the years -- transforming lives and giving young people a new lease on life -- Thank You, America! recognizes ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities." The program also will include a special tribute to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, many of whom are separated from their families and loved ones during this time of the year.
