Mission Crime Stoppers hosting Turkey Giveaway

More than 200 families will enjoy Thanksgiving thanks to the effort


Mission, TX- It has become a heartwarming tradition in the City of Mission to give a Thanksgiving meal to those in need. Mission Crime Stoppers is once again hosting their annual Turkey Giveaway and plans to hand out more than 200 meals to needy families on Friday Nov. 22, 2019. The families are preselected based on need by Mission CISD and the Community Development Block Grant Program.

“We began this program simply as a way of giving back to our community and the annual tradition has grown tremendously,” Robert Rodriguez, Mission Crime Stoppers Coordinator said. “We have partnered up with the City of Mission and the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank to make this holiday a memorable one for families that may have gone without a Thanksgiving dinner. It’s always better to give than to receive.”

The meals have already been prepared and organized and Mission Crime Stoppers will host the Turkey Giveaway in drive-thru fashion. The families were awarded pick-up vouchers in advance.
