'Tis the season for giving, as legendary boxing promoter Don King donated 60 turkeys to help local families. The turkey giveaway is part of his annual tour this time of year. Friday, December 15, 2017, King teamed up with Royal Palm Hearing Aid Centers, the Kiwanis Club of Boca Raton and Addison Appraisal to deliver and distribute the frozen turkeys and spread some holiday cheer for children and families in need in Palm Beach County. King and the organizers say they know the importance of giving back especially during the holidays.
Organizers delivered the turkeys, 7 carts of holiday food and baked goods donated by Fresh Market (Store 28) on Camino Real to many grateful recipients at Boca Helping Hands & Florence Fuller Child Development Centers. Five turkeys were donated to 211 families. Donations were also graciously given to Wayne Barton Study Center. Don King also handed out turkeys at St. Paul Church in Deerfield.
DID YOU KNOW?
Amid the affluence of Palm Beach County, more than 25% of families with young children are living in poverty. More than 90% of the children are living at or below the Federal Poverty Level, and 65% are from single-parent homes. More often than not, parents are the working poor, employed in minimum-wage jobs, disabled, enrolled in career training programs, still in high school, or working their way through college. You can help make a difference! Join our mission to give back in any causes or charities that make a positive impact and touch your heart. Please reach out, get involved and help your community. Donate. Volunteer. Change A Life.
