Fullerton Turkey Giveaway

Yesterday, over 1000 people lined up as early 5:00 A.M. in City of Fullerton, to get a turkey and groceries. Let us remember that during this thanksgiving season many of our constituents are on the brink of being evicted, losing their businesses, and homes. Let’s cherish people, not things, let’s give what we can to others, and let’s reuse, recycle, and help where needed.
