Church starts Thanksgiving early
JACKSON, Tenn. — Some Jackson residents can now afford a Thanksgiving turkey thanks to a local church. Mega Grace Live Church started a turkey give-a-way this year to help families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford one. Assistant Pastor Dedrick Torry said they planned on giving away turkeys, but decided to give out gift cards instead. Torry said the gift cards will be enough to cover the cost of a turkey, and more. “We want to try to give back, use this location to give back to the community, and that’s one thing the Lord blessed us and laid on our hearts to give away during Thanksgiving, is a turkey,” Torry explained. Torry also said the church plans to hold a similar give-a-way closer to Christmas.
