A cannabis company donated 100 turkeys and will distribute them to families Wednesday morning in Thousand Palms.
"We appreciate Bulldog Cannabis for supporting the community and local families and once again giving back in this way to our unincorporated community of Thousand Palms," said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez in a statement. "It is a wonderful donation and people are welcome to come by and pick up a turkey for the holiday."
Residents can pick up their turkeys at Bulldog Cannabis, 72-242 Watt Court in Thousand Palms, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the day before Thanksgiving.
The turkeys will be given out, one per household, on a first-come, first-served basis. Proof of Thousand Palms residency was required prior to picking up a turkey.
"Bulldog Cannabis is proud to continue the tradition of our turkey giveaway to local Thousand Palms residents,'' owner Sam Kapukchyan said in a statement. "Our local Thousand Palms customers have been very loving and supportive of our shop so we will be passing out 100 turkeys, one per household to our local Thousand Palms residents, no purchase necessary."
Next week will mark the second year of the company providing turkeys to residents.
