Salem restaurant gives away free turkeys for Thanksgiving

Local News

A restaurant in Salem gave away free Thanksgiving turkeys Tuesday for families in need.

The Cheesesteak Factory and Jerk House gave away around 100 turkeys to families in need.

Organizers say there were no requirements other than to show up and tell them you needed a turkey.

They say they wanted to do it to give back to the area that has helped their business thrive.

“We just want to show people that we’re here for the community. We’re not just here to make money, we’re here to show people that we can give back to the community and be a good business, and we’re established out here,” said Chauncey Savage with the restaurant.

Workers say they plan on doing other community events and may do another giveaway around Christmas.
