ALTON - For the fourth year in a row, TorHoerman Law of Edwardsville will distribute turkeys on a first-come, first-served basis to residents of Alton. Thanks to the joint efforts of generous local families and businesses, THL can provide 500 turkeys to the Alton community.

Residents interested in obtaining a turkey should plan to come at the start time noted below of the following distribution place:

Thursday, November 16th from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM - 500 turkeys distributed at the Salvation Army at 525 N. Alby Street, Alton, IL

TorHoerman Law started the turkey giveaway four years ago when the firm learned the alarming statistic that over 21 percent of the children in Madison County live in a “food insecure” home. The goal was to make sure that residents from these food insecure homes would be able to share in the great American tradition of a Thanksgiving turkey meal.

Throughout the years, the generous local families and businesses that have come together to provide this important assistance during the holidays have been invaluable. Above all, TorHoerman Law is incredibly grateful to be part of a community that supports its neighbors in times of need.

“Bringing awareness to the issue of hunger in our community and maybe helping with a family memory – or, better yet, 500 family memories – is a good place to start,” Tor Hoerman, Owner of the firm, said. “I am proud of our staff and all of our generous friends that join us in this initiative, and I look forward to helping not only on November 16 but on many more occasions and in different ways in the future.”

The event has been a great success in previous years and as a result, TorHoerman Law has continued to work hard to provide a Thanksgiving meal to those in need. Kristie Stephens, a longtime employee of TorHoerman Law, a resident of Alton, IL., and coordinator of the event, says the event is close to her heart.

“As a member of this community, I see people down on their luck. It started as wanting to give something back to my hometown but has turned into so much more. It’s a chance for us to provide a meal for those who most deserve it, especially during the holidays.”
