Thomas J. Henry wasn't born with all the luxuries, at one time he and his wife were struggling to even put food on their table as he was attending law school.

Now with his successful Corpus Christi law firm, he is able to give back to several communities including Alice, Freer and San Diego.

The annual turkey giveaway by Thomas J. Henry's law firm gave out more than 1,000 frozen turkeys to families in South Texas not including the non-profit organizations.

Volunteers of all ages helped pack and distribute the turkeys to those in line.

Henry went through the crowd and shook hands and took pictures like a hometown celebrity as his volunteers and local city officials distributed the turkeys.

The turkey giveaway started 26 years ago in Corpus Christi before it branched off to Alice, Freer and San Diego.
