Dan Goodson III is once again hosting a Turkey Giveaway in Altus. This will be the third year for the giveaway which is set for Tuesday, Nov. 24, from 5 to 7 p.m., in the parking lot of Mr. Bill’s Grocery Store, 401 West Broadway.

The annual giveaway draws families to receive a turkey and enjoy some hot cocoa, Christmas music and fellowship. Goodson said that the reactions on the faces of the many receiving a turkey is priceless. “To see the happiness, I promise it’s a feeling you won’t ever forget.”

For two years, business owner Robert Rodriguez has been of those who has generously donated turkeys for the event.

“In June 2014, I opened Rodriguez Auto Detail, and since that time I have been welcomed positively by the businesses and people of Altus. One way I have been able to show my thanks is by donating turkeys,” said Rodriguez. “Every family should be blessed with a holiday meal,” he added.

Goodson’s non-profit organization has already started accepting and asking for donations. All turkeys will have marking tags attached identifying the donor. Last year they ran out of turkeys, and a few families were unable to receive one.

Anyone wishing to donate can contact Gibson at 580-471-8539. Volunteers will gladly drop by and pick up your donation. Along with the turkeys, canned food and dessert donations are also being accepted.

To receive a free turkey, each family must present proof residency by showing a current electric or gas bill the day of the giveaway.

You can see some of the happy and joyful faces from past giveaways by viewing “turkey Giveaway Altus OK ” on YouTube or Facebook.

Dan Goodson III is co-CEO of Billionaire Fly Gang , LLC & Billionairez Under Construction (B.U.C.$)
