Thanksgiving is going to look a little different this year as the nation continues to grapple with spikes in COVID-19 cases.

On Saturday, Councilor John Hilliard is partnering with Brothers of Mu Psi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, and the Upsilon Eta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, for the Seventh Annual Turkey Giveaway event.

Councilor Hilliard will be taking part in two separate giveaways on Saturday: the first will be at Tuggle Elementary School at 9:00 a.m., followed by another giveaway in South Pratt (914 Ave. E Birmingham, AL) from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. or while supplies last.

The current public health crisis has exasperated food insecurities for low-income families across the country. Hilliard says it is incumbent upon all of us to look out for one another during these difficult times.

“We host these events every year at Thanksgiving but this year the stakes are much higher, meaning some people are really struggling right now. They may not be able to work, or are having to take time off to take care of their children,” Hilliard said. “This year, we all need to do everything in our power to ensure that no one in our community is going hungry. I’m honored to partner with these great organizations to help put food on tables throughout our city.”

Councilor Hilliard will have media availability during both events.  Social-distancing guidelines will be in place at all times.

When: 9:00 a.m. at Tuggle Elementary School, 10 a.m. at 914 Ave. E, Birmingham, AL
Where: Tuggle Elementary School (412 12th Ct N, Birmingham, AL 35204)
South Pratt (914 Ave. E, Birmingham, AL)
