TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The most important part of any Thanksgiving table is the turkey, but it also happens to be one of the most expensive.
“We are trying to offset some of the costs, so we can help a little bit with a lot of the families here in the Tampa Bay area,” said Dan Cruz, an attorney with Pendas Law Firm.
The Pendas Law Firm hosted their 8th Annual Turkey Giveaway on Monday morning and the thousands of turkeys the firm hands out each year provide meals for thousands of people who otherwise would not be able to afford them.
Families in need waited in line for hours to stop by the firm to pick up a bird, including Juan Duran, who was there bright and early.
“I’m giving this to a family, I’m by myself, so I am giving it to a family of 8, so I hope it’s a big turkey!” said Duran.
The good will doesn’t stop here in Tampa Bay.
The firm will give out more than 3,000 turkeys at their locations in the Orlando, Fort Meyers and Jacksonville areas.
