Turkey toss unites community to feed less fortunate

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Mission at Kern County wants to provide clients with a holiday meal for Thanksgiving, so to help they help a turkey toss to collect donations.

The annual event was held at the Sonic off of Rosedale Highway Saturday.

The first hundred people to bring turkeys received a tote bag as a token of appreciation.

"When I see the community come together it brings a special joy into our hearts at the Mission," said Carlos Baldovinos, executive director.

People could toss a turkey to win prises and there were more games for kids.

The Mission's goal is to provide a turkey feast from November through the end of the holidays.
