The annual turkey giveaway by the Handles Foundation takes place in Harrisburg.
Chris “Handles” Franklin, a Harrisburg native and Harlem Globetrotter, and his foundation held their 5th annual turkey giveaway on Saturday.
Franklin’s Saturday giveaway, held at the Boys and Girls Club of Harrisburg, was the first of three planned over the next few days.
The foundation distributed 150 turkeys on Saturday and plans to distribute another 150 on Sunday from 12-2 p.m. at Edgemont Fire Hall, 1407 N 25th Street.
After that, Franklin will fly to New York for the giveaway on Monday.
The turkey giveaway this year is in memory of Franklin’s parents and close friend, Michael K Williams, who all died this year.
