Assemblyman Chau gives away turkeys during Operation Gobble

In preparation for Thanksgiving, California State Assemblyman Ed Chau donated turkeys Thursday to local organizations that serve low-income families in Alhambra and the west San Gabriel Valley. Along with the San Gabriel Valley Water Company and the California American Water Company, Chau's office hosted the first annual "Operation Gobble" turkey giveaway at the World Journal newspaper headquarters in Monterey Park.

"I am very grateful that Operation Gobble was able to provide the opportunity to give turkeys to families throughout the 49th Assembly [District] who may not otherwise have a traditional holiday meal," Chau said during the Thursday morning press conference.

The Asian Youth Center (AYC) in San Gabriel was one of the organizations that received donated turkeys. AYC Development Manager Kevin Lian explained how his organization plans to distribute the turkeys to residents. "We have an afterschool program for middle school and elementary school and a separate one for high school," Lian said. "Within those programs, we have identified the families who are qualified, low-income, and who would benefit from these turkeys." 

Low-income residents who are not specifically members of an organization but would like a turkey can also benefit from the turkey drive, according to Lian. "All they have to do is come to our facility, talk to our staff," Lian said. "We don't turn anyone away."

Operation Gobble also donated turkeys to Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley, La Casa de San Gabriel Community Center, Kiwanis Club of Temple City, Emergency Resources Association, Home of Angels, and Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. — Greater El Monte Post No. 10216.
