Hundreds of Struggling Families Receive Free Turkeys and Fresh Produce this Thanksgiving Holiday

Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens distributed over 500 free turkeys with all the trimmings to hundreds of families throughout Brooklyn and Queens.

Over 500 families, who may not otherwise be able to afford to celebrate this Thanksgiving season, received free turkeys and fresh produce. Families also received fresh carrots, cabbage, onions, potatoes, green beans, yams, green plantains, apples, oranges, corn on the cob, yucca and collard greens, along with stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, juice, cake mix and icing. Thanks to the generous donations of turkeys and fresh produce from our partners at Food Source, Beacon Group, DiCarlo Food Service, and delivery services by Shleppers Moving and Storage, hundreds of families will be able to enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends.
