RSVP LIST CLOSED, NO WALKUPS ALLOWED: Tuesday, November 25: Councilmember Parks Holding Final Turkey Giveaway to Help Local Families in Need this Thanksgiving

TURKEYS ONLY GIVEN TO PEOPLE WHO PRE-REGISTERED - ABSOLUTELY NO WALK-UPS WILL RECEIVE TURKEYS 

WHAT: Councilmember Bernard C. Parks will be giving away 150 turkeys to 8th district families in need for his 12th Annual Turkey Giveaway on Tuesday, November 25. This is the last turkey giveaway he will put on as his term ends June 30, 2015. Individuals who reserved a turkey in advance (one per household) will come to Parks’ Constituent Service Center to claim their holiday bird. Numero Uno Market, a valuable member of the community, has also graciously donated gift cards to be raffled to guests.


While the economy may be improving for some, many residing in economically-challenged areas throughout Los Angeles have not felt relief and continue to struggle to cover basic needs. Los Angeles is notorious for being home to some of the highest rents in the nation that consume over half of peoples’ monthly income.

As Councilmember, he is a staunch advocate for holding elected officials accountable for their actions and promoting transparency. As former Chief of Police with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), he is credited with creating the nation’s first Cold Case Unit to close unsolved crimes and reforming one of the nation’s most renowned police forces. Councilmember Bernard C. Parks will celebrate 50 years of public service on February 1, 2015.
