Held Nov. 19 at Boys & Girls Clubs' new Park Meadows Community Club in Fort Myers, recipients at the Turkey Give-a-Way snaked through the parking lot and received frozen turkeys, stuffing, cake mix, macaroni and cheese, fresh cucumbers and oranges, canned fruit, pancake mix, soup, canned ham, water, peanut butter, cereal and snack foods. Additionally, families received children's shoes and books, blankets, tarps, hygiene products and other hurricane relief supplies.
