The Turkey Tour made a stop in Mangonia Park today.

Boxing promoter Don King helped pass out turkeys to families in need this holiday season.

This is the 50th year King has distributed the food.

The tour made other stops in Deerfield Beach, Cleveland, Ohio and Newark, New Jersey.

"To be able to go from town to town, city to city, and to be able to speak to them- but at the same time, if you're naked, give them clothes, if you're hungry, feed them. So we got to be able to do what we have to do,” King said.

"They don't have the resources to provide turkeys for their families for the holidays, so we consider this to be a wonderful blessing."

Not only did families receive turkeys but several local groups and food pantries received donations.
