Residents from throughout Merced made their way to CG&E Auto Body on Main Street last Saturday afternoon to take part in a big Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway.
They were lined up down the street, and around the corner, for the free, frozen holiday birds. Volunteers also delivered boxes of turkeys to those who were unable to stand in line or leave their cars.
The event was brought together by CG&E Auto Body, Maria’s Taco Shop, and Nachos Tire — all local businesses who contributed time and effort for families in need this holiday season. Also during the giveaway, a holiday prayer area was offered by New Life Apostolic Church, along with music and entertainment from the Radio Gazer Network.
