Second Liners Mardi Gras Club gives back at annual Turkey Giveaway

The Second Liners Mardi Gras Club hosted their annual Turkey Giveaway.

The Second Liners have been doing their annual Turkey Giveaway for about 15 years. The turkeys were shared to vehicles lined up at John Henry Beck Park that represent local churches.

Coastal churches will then distribute the turkeys to needy families and seniors in the church communities.

The Second Liners gave away 260 turkeys among ten different churches. Turkey Giveaway Committee Co-Chair Pinkey Lewis said, “We do it because we care. We’re a community service-based organization and we’re about the community, family events…just family ties, period. We just want everyone to have a safe and happy holiday and just be grateful and thankful for all that they have…and we hope that we made it a little better for some people.”

The Second Liner’s intent is to support a community infrastructure that helps foster an enduring rapport between all of the residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
