CHULA VISTA and LOS ANGELES, Calif., Dec. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the sixth straight year, Hensel Phelps, along with community partners Faith Inspirational, 2nd Call, Parents of Watts, and PVJOBS, held their annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway in four locations in Los Angeles and this year added the Chula Vista Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) as a community partner for one of the distribution locations.
Each Turkey Giveaway day started out with excited volunteers gathering to collect, count, bag and prepare frozen turkeys to be distributed across Los Angeles county and the City of Chula Vista. Smart & Final also provided coupons that could assist those in need with grocery purchases.
"I'm proud to see Hensel Phelps distribute over 2,000 turkeys at multiple locations in LA and San Diego. The long lines and happy faces tell us we are making a difference! For me, it means even more that we have no current or imminent project associated directly with the Hensel Phelps Turkey Giveaway... yet we are still here! It speaks to the heart and to the purpose of our people to always be part of the solution!" said Cuyler McGinley, District Manager/Vice President at Hensel Phelps.
With Thanksgiving a mere two days following the Hensel Phelps Turkey Giveaway, the planned event was to ensure that families in Southern California that face challenges and hardships were provided the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families and loved ones.
"There are so many disabled and low income families in our community that cannot afford a proper Thanksgiving celebration. We sincerely thank Hensel Phelps and all the sponsors in this demonstration of empathy," said Ernest Roberts, Executive Director at PVJOBS.
With a history of giving back and community service, Hensel Phelps and community partners provided a total of 2,200 turkeys across Southern California to local families. The event was made possible by generous contributions from subcontractors, general contractors and community members.
