Richardson continued and said: “We are happy to partner with Crisis Food Center, who are donating the side items and went 50/50 with Local 1255 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 celebrate with a good holiday meal."

Due to social distancing, there will not be a walk-through, walk-in, or walk-up.
