Turkeys, sides, and fresh produce were given away to 200 families.

Heyward said there are still a lot of families struggling as the pandemic drags on.

“Definitely a lot of need, whether it was during the summer in the middle of the pandemic and now, as well,” Heyward said. “We have a big call to give back and I want to make sure I take part.”
