CATS hands out turkeys to riders

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The bulging red sacks seen on CATS buses in Baton Rouge recently led to excitement Monday as employees of the company bagged whole turkeys for families who ride the bus.

Some workers even advised riders on how to cook the turkey for the best dinner ever. A couple hundred birds are a part of family feasts.

"AmeriHealth is donating 250 turkeys in partnership with BREC and CATS," said Bob Mirabito, executive director of CATS. "We're distributing some of those turkeys to our riders."

For the Thanksgiving holiday, CATS will run a regular schedule through Wednesday, but will not run routs for Thursday and will run a Saturday schedule on Friday.
