Little Rock Compassion Center needs turkeys for Thanksgiving baskets

Little Rock Compassion Center needs turkeys for Thanksgiving baskets

LITTLE ROCK, Ark (LRCC) -- The Little Rock Compassion Center is looking for help to put together 500 Thanksgiving baskets for the low-income families the organization serves.  And the biggest need is for frozen turkeys. 

"We want to make sure we have the entire dinner in our baskets," said Pastor William Holloway, the Founder and Director of the Little Rock Compassion Center.  "We really need the community to help.  If you can bring a 14-20 pound frozen turkey to us, it will bless many families in the area."

"We also would be very grateful for the other elements of the traditional dinner as well," Holloway said.  "And, if families want to volunteer to help us put the baskets together, that would be a wonderful way to prepare for Thanksgiving."
