Community members receive Thanksgiving dinner from Primera police

November 20, 2018

PRIMERA — Jesus Rodriguez looked into the bag of Thanksgiving trimmings as soon as he walked out of the Primera Community Center.

“We got pumpkin pie,” he exclaimed with excitement as he shuffled through the bag filled with corn, stuffing, bread and more. His father was carrying a 20 pound turkey.

They had just picked up a Thanksgiving dinner to take home and celebrate the holiday from the Primera Police Department.

The Rodriguez family was one of 27 families who received a meal.

“We try to help as much as we can,” said Primera Police Chief Manuel Trevino.

The chief said this is the fifth year the department and area businesses have been raising money to donate the holiday dinners.
