An Annual Occasion
Turkeys to Needy Families Each Year
Thomas J. Henry has been giving turkeys to needy families each year for over a decade. In fact, more than 300,000 people throughout the South Texas region have been impacted by this generous event, making the Thomas J. Henry Turkey Givaway one of the largest Thanksgiving charity events in the nation.
For years, South Texas residents have lined up around Attorney Thomas J. Henry’s building waiting eagerly for their turkey. Often times, the first person in line had been there since two o’clock in the morning and people continue to receive turkeys until late in the afternoon.
But the Turkey Giveaways are not just about turkeys...they have become a tradition in the Coastal Bend. A way to kick-off the holiday season and bring families and friends together for a day of fun and gratitude.
Come for the Turkey, Stay for the Fun!
The event gets bigger and better with each passing year - this year we have more than 20 local vendors and more free fun for the kid's, including:
- An expanded kid's zone with an inflatable sports challenge and carnivals games
- Face painters, balloon twisters, and clowns
- Santa and Mrs. Claus and the elves
- A kid-friendly petting zoo
- Music, popcorn, and much more!
Turkey Giveaways in Alice, San Diego, and Freer
While the Corpus Christi has benefited from the event for decades, Mr. Henry recently directed another Turkey Giveaway in the local communities of Alice, TX, San Diego, TX, and Freer, TX in order to make it easier for those in need to receive a turkey.
This event is about giving back to the people who have given so much to Thomas J. Henry. We feel that it is our duty to help those in need and look forward to handing turkeys out for many years to come.
Turkey Request Form For Local Churches and Organizations
Please use the form below to submit a turkey request for your Coastal Bend church/organization (only use this form if you are a church or non-profit organization in the Corpus Christi/Coastal Bend area - we are NOT able to ship these turkeys; they must be picked up in person.) Please note: our standard request is for 5 turkeys per church or organization. In order to accommodate the many churches and organizations in the Coastal Bend, as well as ensure we have enough turkeys to provide for the public giveaways, please limit your requests accordingly. Request approvals will be sent out via email (to the email address provided below) in mid-November. Thank you for participating in the Thomas J. Henry Turkey Giveaway!
