Thousands of turkeys given to local service members

Turkey for Troops event provides 4,500 turkeys

BOERNE, Texas - Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Toyota of Boerne helped some local service members Friday by giving away thousands of turkeys.

Friday was the sixth annual Turkey for Troops giveaway. The dealership handed out 4,500 turkeys.

Vick Vaughan, the dealership’s owner, said each year, the event gets bigger and bigger.

“Our military, we live in Military (City) USA, and they give up the ultimate sacrifices to protect our freedom and our communities and our way of life, and it’s the least we can do. It’s a small gesture, really a turkey, but it lets them know how much we appreciate them,” Vaughan said.

KSAT is one of the sponsors of the event. And on behalf of Toyota of Boerne, we would like to thank all the men and women who have served our country and who continue to serve.
