LANCASTER – Nearly six dozen turkeys were distributed to local residents in need this week, thanks to Congregation Beth Knesset Bamidbar (BKB), the Reform Jewish Congregation of the Antelope Valley.
BKB conducts an annual fundraising campaign to provide Thanksgiving turkeys for needy Antelope Valley residents; and this year, the campaign provided 70 turkeys for distribution by the Antelope Valley Senior Center (AVSC) on Monday, Nov. 23. Each turkey and a food box were loaded into the car of each recipient by AVSC staff.
Working with other Los Angeles County departments and community organizations, AVSC is designed to provide an array of educational, social, and recreational activities to persons 50 years and older. During the past year, AVSC has been transitioning to be a community center for all ages. To learn more about AVSC, visit: https://wdacs.lacounty.gov/center/antelope/.
Monetary donations for the turkey giveaway campaign are still welcome and can be made online by going to the “Community” menu at the BKB website, www.bkbav.org, or by mailing a check made out to “BKB” to P.O. Box 31,Lancaster, CA 93584.

These people are helping others which is a wonderful thing. Not one of you focusing on a car has done one selfless act in your lives. Self-centered people.
SCREW U LCD! You prolly are writing that based upon yourself being selfless…
So happy to see people giving. The senior center does so much. That Mercedes is old and so what.
Someone in the line is driving a Mercedes….
Free Turkey says
Probably a member of the congregation…

Kind of looks like it’s a bit beat up.
WHY are we commenting on a car here ppl? That’s not the point of this article dumba**es!
No, just poor quality photo. That is not an old Mercedes.
Does WHY people that people who drive Mercedes cars are truly “needed Antelope Valley residents”???
Gobble gobble says
Maybe (the occupants in the Mercedes) they were lost driving from LA and happen to stumble on the free turkey giveaway line?
In that case, this so-called news site needs to get their facts straight.

Loam: There are people that give in this community, then there is you that take the opportunity to put others down for giving. You see a Mercedes and start picking everything apart. Mean-spirited attitudes like yours are what makes me hurt for this society.
Laura – GOD does not discriminate; whether your black or blue, rich or poor, IT doesnt frickin matter! We don’t know what their situation is so don’t be quick to judge
Who knows? says
Could be a salvage title. A lot of people buy them so they can be flashy on a budget.
