A North Carolina man who took home more than $100,000 in the lottery used some his winnings to help feed Thanksgiving dinner to people in need.

The Associated Press reports William Bailey of Weddington, N.C., took home $118,755 after taxes.

His wife, Hazel, reportedly said the couple took their 16 grandchildren to distribute the meals. 

Hazel said she wasn't sure how many meals were purchased, but there was talk by her husband about getting 20 turkeys.

The rest of the money will go to their family, church and grandchildren's college funds, AP reported.
