After recent donations, Stewpot receives enough turkeys for Thanksgiving baskets

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Stewpot Ministries is no longer in need of turkeys for Thanksgiving.

However, they do need 500 turkeys for Christmas.

Executive Director Frank Spencer said the organization was hundreds of turkeys short.

He said by a generous donation, the families who will get Thanksgiving baskets this year will get their turkeys.

“It’s been slow this year with the increase in the price of turkeys. Usually we get enough turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas,” said Spencer. “But we barely got enough for this year. We were about 60 short. My good friends, Bill and Cindy Warner in Madison said we’ll make up the difference.”

Anyone who wants to donate a turkey to Stewpot for Christmas, take them to the location on W. Capitol Street.
