State Comptroller Susana Mendoza hands out Thanksgiving dinners in Cairo

Dozens of families in Cairo are all set for Thanksgiving thanks to the generosity of some organizations and state and local leaders.

State Comptroller Susana Mendoza and her staff were joined by State Senator Dale Fowler and Representative Patrick Windhorst in Cairo to distribute 150 turkeys and sides just in time for Thanksgiving.

Laborer’s Local 773 and the Marion Krispy Kream donated the meals.

Arrowleaf contacted the families receiving the meals ahead of time and gave away children’s coats to anyone that needed them.

This is the sixth year the comptroller has given away turkeys in Cairo.
