With Thanksgiving just days away, Milton said the event was a great way to provide economic relief for families in the community.

“I always do it the weekend before Thanksgiving so everybody can be fresh...because Thanksgiving is a time where a lot of people try to keep up with the trends, pay for big Thanksgiving dinners, [and] the outfits. It’s like, hey if I can find a way to reduce some of those costs down and provide economic relief for these families then why not do it,” said Milton.

Milton estimates about 250 people attended the event.
