James Brown Turkey Giveway registration begins Saturday

Registration for the annual James Brown Turkey Giveaway begins Saturday.

The Brown Family Children Foundation will hand out Thanksgiving turkeys to hundreds of families in need. To receive a free turkey, people must preregister on one of four Saturdays. About 400 turkeys were given out last year.

To register, take a state-issued photo ID and a utility bill with proof of address to Dyess Park, 902 James Brown Blvd., between 9 and 11 a.m. Saturday. Registration will continue Nov. 2, 9 and 16.

The giveaway was started by the soul singer more than 20 years ago, and the Brown Family Children Foun­dation has continued it since 2007.
