ATLANTA (AP) - An organization will be hosting a special Thanksgiving celebration in metro Atlanta for refugees.

Many recently arrived in the area from countries including Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq, Bhutan and Sudan. The event will feature traditional Thanksgiving fare like roast turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and pumpkin pie.
