Cedar Rapids church gives away 100 turkeys ahead of Thanksgiving
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) -A church in Cedar Rapids is working to make sure people have enough to eat less than a week away from Thanksgiving.
Lifeline Ministries Church in Cedar Rapids held its second turkey giveaway on November 18th.
They gave 100 turkeys for free on a first come, first serve basis.
Organizers say many people lined up for more than half an hour to get them.
One church leader says events like this fill a need that is only growing in the community.
“There is a need and I tell you this year with the cost of food I think every household has felt the pinch,” said Co-Pastor Donna Pridgeon.
The church holds other events like this throughout the year including giving out backpacks to those in need in the summer.
