If you need a bird for your Thanksgiving feast, you’ll want to mark your calendar for the Great Turkey Giveaway happening this Saturday.
The great folks at Mattressville host the annual event, which provides 2,000 pounds of free turkeys to Stephenville residents.
Owners David Davis and Brandon McDonald began hosting the event when they opened the Stephenville location in 2017.
"We do this the week before Thanksgiving every year and we give away turkeys to anyone who shows up,” David told Beneath the Surface News. “We encourage people who know they need a turkey to get there early because they go fast, and once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
The event begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19, at BMY Wealth Management Group in Stephenville and the turkeys are given away on a first-come, first-served basis.
Once people arrive at the parking lot of BMY they will exit their vehicles to form a line to receive their turkey (one per family).
"We call this ‘doing good for goodness sake,’” David said. “It’s a way to show our gratitude to the community because they have been so good to us."
