The Turkey Fry Guys, a new nonprofit organization which raises money for abused children in the Shreveport-Bossier area, is holding its first Annual Turkey Fry. You can order a fried turkey — today is the deadline — and pick it up between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 at House of Carpets and Lighting at 4344 Youree Drive.

The organization is raising money by selling fried turkeys during the month of November, raffle tickets and taking simple donations through their website. To order a turkey, buy raffle tickets or make donations, go to turkeyfryguys.com. You can also get information about The Gobble Wobble Event and Auction that will be held Friday, Nov. 18.

All profits are donated to the Gingerbread House, a nonprofit organization that specializes in helping these children in need.

Your donations and support help in these vital areas: preventing child sex trafficking in our area; aiding in prevention education and outreach; providing trauma-informed counseling services, and bringing help to child abuse victims in Shreveport-Bossier.

By donating to the Turkey Fry Guys, you would be helping to raise awareness for these local abuse victims and children in our community and you would be supporting the Gingerbread House.
