Turkey Giveaway returns Nov. 21


The Great Turkey Giveaway returns Nov. 21, providing a complete turkey dinner to 100 Erath County families for free.


Mattressville is joined in sponsoring the annual giving tradition by Baby Clay's Meat Market, BMY and Timber Ridge Church.


In years past, turkeys were handed out at multiple locations in the community but precautions are being taken to keep "your family and ours safe this holiday," according to the event's organizers. This year, those who sign up will not just receive a turkey just in time for the holiday but all the necessary supplies to make a feast for their family.


Families can sign up for the dinner by visiting timberridgechurch.com/turkey and registering. Afterwards, they can pick up their dinner from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Nov. 21 at Timber Ridge Church (N. Bates and FM 8 in Stephenville), where volunteers will load the supplies as recipients drive through thereby limiting contact.
