WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Thanksgiving is just two days away, and on Tuesday morning groups in the Port City made sure families in need have something on the table.
Support the Port and On Da Edge Barbershop along with other community members gave away free turkeys to families in Wilmington.
The second annual “Turkey Bowl Tuesday” event took place at Morning Glory Coffeehouse on Dawson street. It started at 11 a.m. and lasted until the group ran out of turkeys to give away.
“We were able to give away every turkey,” Support the Port Foundation Founder Cedric Harrison said. “No turkeys left behind, so we feel like no family left behind, so everything was pretty much a success.”
Harrison estimates about 150 turkeys were given to families in the community, and hopes the event continues to grow in the coming years.
The mission of Support the Port is to enhance, cultivate and provide a renewed sense of community ownership and excellence for residents of Wilmington.
