FLINT TWP. — Area seniors lined up at the Carman-Ainsworth Senior Center on Nov. 23 to pick up a free frozen turkey, courtesy of Flint Township police and firefighters and Matrix Expedited Service.

For the past several years, the Flint Township Fire Association has teamed up with Flint Township police to give senior citizens a full Thanksgiving dinner at the Carman-Ainsworth Senior Center. But in light of COVID-19 concerns, organizers decided instead to host a drive-thru turkey giveaway this year.

The Flint Township Fire Association and the Flint Township Police Department wishes to thank Matrix Expedited Service for donating 50 turkeys for the giveaway. — B.G.
