State Rep. Borris Miles Provides A Happy Thanksgiving for Houston Families

It was the kind of event that warmed your heart, but one that also made you wonder about the state of  the nation’s economy.

This past Saturday, hundreds of people lined up for an opportunity to get a free turkey just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

This is the seventh year that State Rep. Borris Miles has provided turkeys for underserved  families living in the neighborhoods he represents. 

Many of the people were elderly or disabled, and the Houston lawmaker assembled a team of young men to carry the turkeys to the recipients’ vehicles.

 This year, Rep. Miles donated the turkeys in collaboration with TexStars Foundation and Our Legends Givings.

“When we work together as a community, we all rise,” says Miles about his turkey give-a-way.  “I want to thank all the people who have worked with me over the past seven years to brighten the holidays for District 146 families. I know that together we have made a difference.”
