Free turkeys, trimmings to be given out in Larimer
The Iota Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. on Saturday will distribute free turkeys and trimmings to needy families at its Larimer center.
The organization is planning to give away 400 baskets containing frozen turkeys and side dishes that include stuffing mix, canned vegetables, yams, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese mix, cranberry sauce and cake mix.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the fraternity center, 123 Meadow St. It will mark the 24th year that Iota Phi has given away free turkeys at Thanksgiving. Iota Phi is a fraternal order consisting of black professionals in Pittsburgh.
“We want to solidify our position as a beacon in our neighborhood by assisting those in need,” chapter President Jabari Weatherspoon said.
