MIAMI-DADE - The tradition of giving thanks and celebrating families continued in District 2 this year, as more than 2,000 participated in Commissioner Jean Monestime’ s annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway on Nov. 19. Commissioner Monestime distributed turkeys to families at Arcola Lakes Senior Center and Oak Grove Park for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what we have while helping those who need a little more,” said Commissioner Monestime. “We do this every year because we want to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday while coming together in a spirit of community.”

Commissioner Monestime thanked the volunteers and various community-based agencies who participated in the distribution efforts. “I’m personally very grateful for the selfless dedication of our community partners and volunteers,” Commissioner Monestime said.
