Riverside County Supervisor V. Manuel Perez helped a cannabis company distribute 100 turkeys Wednesday to families in Thousand Palms for Thanksgiving.
“We are all about family caring for others and giving back,” Bulldog Cannabis owner Sam Kapukchyan said in a statement.
Residents picked up their turkeys at Bulldog Cannabis, 72-242 Watt Court in Thousand Palms from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesday. By around 9:30 a.m., Perez said in a live video that over 50 turkeys were already distributed.
“If you’re going to fry your turkey do not put it in there frozen because it’s going to blow up,” Perez said in the live video. “I’ve seen it happen before, so make sure you defrost it. Thaw it out.”
The turkeys were given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Proof of Thousand Palms residency was required prior to picking up a turkey.
“We really appreciate Bulldog Cannabis for providing this generous donation to the community of Thousand Palms,” Perez said.
