Thanksgiving

Members of The Good Samaritan ministry’s board of directors and volunteers are pictured here with some of the recipients of a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway Monday morning at The Good Samaritan location at First Baptist Church in South Boston. The Good Samaritan partners with the Halifax Area Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation every year for the Thanksgiving turkey giveaway.

Thirty-nine local families in need will have a Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings this year.

They will feast on that holiday meal thanks to the generosity of The Good Samaritan ministry and the Halifax Area Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation. Both organizations donated turkeys for the giveaway.
