District 5 and the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Local 624 Distribute Turkeys at Collins Garden Park

SAN ANTONIO (November 15, 2023)—  Yesterday, the Council District 5 team partnered with the San Antonio Professional Fire Fighters Local 624 for a turkey distribution at the Collins Garden Park.

Hundreds of families gathered at the neighborhood park to receive a free turkey.

“This is a special time of year where families can enjoy each other’s company over a delicious home cooked meal,” said Councilwoman Teri Castillo. “With rising costs for everyday food items, providing turkeys for our District 5 families can really set the table for their holiday celebrations.”

The Councilwoman added, “We are grateful for the solidarity our San Antonio Professional Firefighters Local 624 members displayed for hundreds of District 5 families. For the second year in a row, they have gone above and beyond for our residents. That is what public service is all about.”

Residents in need of food assistance can call the San Antonio Food Bank at 210-431-8326 or visit their website at SAFoodBank.org. The San Antonio Food Bank can assist with SNAP, other benefits applications, immediate food assistance, and job training opportunities.
