DENHAM SPRINGS – The deadline is Thursday, Nov. 16, for families to take part in the Second Annual Turkey Giveaway founded by a local Realtor.

Brittiny Howard, founder and president of Brittiny Howard Realty Group, began the free turkey giveaway after the Great Flood of 2016.

Howard – herself a flooding victim -- has said when she learned other flood victims were not going to celebrate Thanksgiving that year, she sought donations of turkeys, got them cooked and distributed them.

“If you or someone you know needs a turkey this year, please leave your name and contact information as well as the size of the family,” Howard said.

Howard can be reached at (225) 500-2014 or howardgroupisa@gmailcom.

Families need to be able to pick up a turkey on Sunday, Nov. 19, at Brittiny Howard Realty Group, 30984 La. 16, Denham Springs.

Other real estate-related businesses helping this year are GMFM Mortgage, Fairway Mortgage, Baton Rouge Title Co., and HDMK.
