Borderland Rainbow Center provides turkeys to 100 thankful El Pasoans

Community

Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family, and food — and one organization is making sure El Pasoans have all three.

The Borderland Rainbow Center gave away 100 turkeys to its clients on Saturday.

“This will probably be one of the first Thanksgivings we are going to be spending it at home and with a turkey in the oven,” recipient Paloma Perez tells KTSM, “so it really means a lot to me.”

According to its website, the center’s mission is to create a community space that supports and empowers El Paso’s LGBTQI community.

The organization says it is always in need of canned protein, rice, and personal hygiene products. 

“Giving out food and stuff helps the community but…it [also] helps me,” Julie Lucas of the Borderland Rainbow Center said at the event.
