For those of you planning to cook your own holiday feast next week, one South Mississippi State Representative is ready to help you get a leg up with a free turkey.
District 119 State Representative Sonya Williams Barnes has teamed up with Chama Gulf Coast to host the seventh annual Community Turkey Give-A-Way.
Free turkeys will be given out next Tuesday, November 26th at Lockett-Williams Mortuary in Gulfport.
Starting at 6 p.m., turkeys will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be given out only as supplies last.
Event organizers ask that only those who are truly in need and challenged to afford the traditional turkey at Thanksgiving to show up for a free holiday turkey.
Lockett-Williams Mortuary is located at 2018 31st Avenue in Gulfport.
