Community activists are making sure some struggling families enjoy their Thanksgiving by handing out hundreds of free turkeys.

Bishop Larry Trotter from Sweet Holy Spirit Church and activist Antonio Rias teamed up for this giveaway.

They were in south suburban Burnham Sunday afternoon passing out turkeys.

Rias said he solicited some generous individuals to donate money for the turkeys and Wal-Mart sold them at a discount.
