Hundreds line up to get free turkeys in Tampa

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

People started lining up as early as 4 a.m. to get one of 1,000 turkeys given away Monday at a local law firm.

The annual tradition of putting food on the table continued at Pendas Law Firm on MLK, where they gave away turkeys to the first 1,000 people in line.

"Many have shared their stories, and they've told me without (our) help they would not be able to feed their family," said Lou Pendas. "They give me hugs. They give me many thanks and kisses, and it's really humbling. It's an amazing experience."

The Pendas law firm first started giving away the turkeys about four years ago.

This year, Pendas said he had to turn away hundreds of people, and he wishes he could do more.
