The City of McAllen and McAllen Crime Stoppers are hosting their annual Turkey Meal Giveaway on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. at the McAllen Police Department, 1601 N. Bicentennial Blvd.
The McAllen Crime Stoppers Board raised funds from the community for this special event to purchase Thanksgiving turkey dinners for about 200 families with modest means.
“Crime Stoppers is a valued tool for the police department but, during the holidays, it’s about showing our thanks to our community. McAllen Crime Stoppers is a citizen group that volunteers to raise funds to pay citizens for information or TIPS anonymously,” said Chief Victor Rodriguez. “We are very proud to be part of this and very glad we have the leadership of the Crime Stoppers Board to get this done.”
“We would like to thank our community for helping us provide a turkey dinner for families. We have learned throughout the year, most of these families would not enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal if McAllen Crime Stoppers didn’t raise funds,” said Pablo Trevino.
McAllen Crime Stoppers Turkey Meal Giveaway is successful because of the community support it receives that makes this event a success.
