Spirit of Thanksgiving on full display in Morrisania

Posted: Updated:

The spirit of Thanksgiving was on full display in Morrisania on Tuesday.

The United Bodegas of America handed out hundreds of turkeys to families in need.

"We are here to try to give something to our community because we have the support for the community, so we are to give it back something for what we got for them," said Radames Rodriguez, of Bodegas of America.

Organizers say bodega owners often struggle to make ends meet.

They say having this turkey drive helps them say thank you to community members who give them business.
