Some local residents have about one hundred reasons to be thankful for the Tallahassee Urban League. The organization handed out one hundred Thanksgiving gift baskets Tuesday, filled with turkey and all the fixins that come with it.
Recipients had to show a lease and proof of income.
The League says it recognizes the need to help those that are less fortunate at all times, but especially during the holidays.
"It's been very helpful to me more than one year. I've got my house renovated in 03 I was very pleased with that. So they've been very beneficial to the community for many, many years," said gift receiver Lola Simmons.
The Tallahassee Urban League has given away turkeys for Thanksgiving for more than two decades now.
