Officers from the South Gessner Patrol station came up with the idea last week of giving away free turkeys to citizens as a way to give back to the community seeing as there were many residents in the area who lost a lot during Hurricane Harvey.
South Gessner commanders, along with State Representative Gene Wu and Richard Rodriguez from the Brays Oaks Management District graciously donated funds to purchase 52 turkeys to distribute.
Turkeys with picked up early this morning through collaboration with Fiesta. South Gessner officers conducted traffic stops and pedestrian encounters at various affected apartment complexes and areas around Southwest Houston and distributed the turkeys.
