This is the 11th year St. John the Almighty Fortress Baptist Church has organized a turkey giveaway for those in need of a little help this holiday season.

The line for this event wrapped around an entire city block off Hartridge Street. But it wasn't just the turkeys in these food bags. Rolls, vegetables and all the trimmings were included.

Pastor George Lee calls it a uniting moment for a stressed community.

"This helps us understand that we have more similarities than differences. So, it's important for us to be able to come together.  And what better time to come together around some good food than Thanksgiving season,” said Dr. Lee.

The St. John Baptist Church also provides meals to those in need throughout the year on every fourth Thursday at the Inner City Night Shelter.
