CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Local attorney Thomas J. Henry will provide free turkeys to local residents at four different Coastal Bend locations on Saturday across the Coastal Bend.

The giveaway began Friday morning when Henry provided turkeys to Corpus Christi churches and non-profit organizations. The donations spread to Coastal Bend area locations Saturday morning.

Henry has been giving away Thanksgiving turkeys to needy families each November for more than a decade. In fact, more than 350,000 people throughout the South Texas region have been impacted by this generous event, making the Thomas J. Henry Turkey Giveaway one of the largest Thanksgiving charity events in the nation.

To ensure the safety of staff and event participants, the giveaway will be drive-thru only again this year. Walk-ups will not be allowed.

Locations in Alice, San Diego, Robstown and Freer will host the giveaway. More information can be obtained by checking here.

Due to COVID-19 and the safety of volunteers and event participants, the Corpus Christi giveway has been moved to Fairgrounds Field Stadium in Robstown.
