Some area merchants and residents combined forces to give back to the community for the holidays.

For the third year, free turkeys were given away in a drive-through event along 3rd St. and Fillmore St. in Davenport. Anyone could pull up curbside to get a free turkey. The group of friends and neighbors have given away an estimated 1,000+ turkeys over the course of three years.

The group will also be organizing a toy drive in December to give back to the community.
