"In an effort to support families during these trying times of 2020, Sheriff J.E 'Eddie' Guerra is tripling his efforts this year to provide much needed meals for thanksgiving, consisting of a whole precooked frozen turkey, dry goods like beans, rice, pasta, and canned vegetables," according to a Facebook post by the Sheriff's Office.
Turkeys will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. One turkey will be provided per vehicle.
