Mission PD hosting Turkey Giveaway – 100 families will enjoy Thanksgiving because of the drive-thru event

It has become an inspiring tradition in the City of Mission to give a Thanksgiving meal to those in need. The Mission Police Department and Mission Crime Stoppers is once again hosting their annual Turkey Giveaway. Officers plan to hand out more than 100 meals to families in need on Tuesday Nov. 15.

“It is a small way of giving back to our great community. It’s been another challenging year, so we are excited to bring some joy to these families,” Mission Police Chief Cesar Torres said. “We partnered up with McAllen ER and Mission Crime Stoppers to make this holiday a memorable one for families that may have gone without a Thanksgiving meal.”

The meals have already been prepared and organized and Mission PD will host the Turkey Giveaway in drive-thru fashion. Citizens are asked to open their trunk so officers can simply place the food box inside with limited contact. The families were preselected and were awarded food pick-up vouchers in advance. This is NOT open to the public.
