Kankakee, IL — Mayor Christopher W. Curtis will once again provide turkeys with other Thanksgiving related sides to members of the community. This event, sponsored by local supermarkets and the Mayor, will provide free Thanksgiving dinners to residents on a first-registered, first-served basis. The giveaway will take place on Saturday, November 18 in the parking lot of the Municipal building between 09:00am-12:00pm.
"For the third year, we take part in this tradition of giving away Thanksgiving meals to families in the City of Kankakee," said Mayor Curtis. "Last year, we gave away meals to 183 families, and this year, when the cost of living is increasing and economic conditions are becoming more difficult, we have to provide more to the community. I would like to thank the support of local sponsors, Walmart, Berkot's Super Foods, Jewel Osco, as well as David Guzman in the Mayor's office, for their contribution, generosity and commitment to the City of Kankakee and for making this possible. This will be an exciting day and we look forward to growing each year."
