Drive-Through Turkey Tuesday

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Join City Council Members Crissy Thomas and Rev. Ike Perkins for the 7th Annual Community Turkey Tuesday. Council Members Thomas and Perkins and volunteers hand out hundreds of free turkeys to local families in need.

Thomas and Perkins ask that each person picking up only takes one turkey per family. "We operate on an honor system," Thomas said.  This year, residents can stay in their vehicle and drive through the parking lot to pick up turkeys. There is a maximum of two turkeys per car if two adults are in the vehicle and not in the same household. Residents can also walk up and receive one turkey per adult.
