ZACHARY, LA (NBC33) — One hundred families will not go hungry on Christmas thanks to a local business.
Millner and Daughter Mortuary in Zachary will hand out 100 turkeys to anyone 65 years or older beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22.
"Christmas is a time that everyone wants to be happy,” Shelley Moore, employee at Miller & Daughter, explained. “You don't want to worry if you have enough food to feed everyone that's going to come, ‘cause families can be so big and you want to make sure they can feed everyone. We would rather just help you so you don't have to be concerned about whether or not everyone is going to have a meal."
This is the first time the mortuary has handed out turkeys for Christmas.
