Pacific Gas and Electric Company partnered with the A. Philip Randolph Institute and San Francisco Housing Authority for their 6th Annual Turkey Giveaway this week.
In San Francisco, more than 150,000 people live at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level. As unemployment continues to soar, need is especially high during the holiday season.
This year, the three partner groups gave away more than 750 turkey baskets at the Hunter’s View, Hunter’s Point and Alice Griffith housing developments in the Bayview-Hunter’s Point community.
Over 150 people showed up at the Hunter’s Point housing development to receive baskets filled with a 10-12 pound turkey, bread, rice, cans of cranberry sauce, yams, corn, greens and cream of mushroom.
