Eastside church to give away 1,500 turkeys for those in need

Eastridge Church will provide 1,500 free Thanksgiving turkeys and bags of groceries to families in need on Saturday, Nov. 20, at its Issaquah and West Seattle locations.

Food will be given away starting at 9 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. No demonstration of need is required. Turkeys will be limited to one per household. The church will also provide new gloves for adults and children.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the giveaway will be drive-thru only at both locations. The church asks that everyone remain in their cars and wear a mask when receiving their supplies. This is the 18th year Eastridge Church has held its Thanksgiving giveaway.

The Issaquah location is at 24205 Issaquah-Fall City Road.

The West Seattle location is at 4500 39th Avenue SW.
