"We will give one turkey and one bag of sides, per car on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. We ask that everyone wear a mask for the safety of all parties,” said, Fire Captain Derrick Richardson, a member of Alton Firefighters Local 1255.
“We are happy to partner with Crisis Food Center, which is donating the side items and went 50/50 with the Local on purchasing the turkeys. This is an ongoing relationship between the Local and CFC since the first turkey giveaway in 2017. Both organizations are committed to helping those in need to celebrate with a good holiday meal,” said Richardson.
