Orlando law firm gives out free Thanksgiving turkeys to families in need

An Orlando law firm is once again making sure that families in need have a turkey on the table this Thanksgiving. 

The Pendas Law Firm handed out hundreds of turkeys at its 14th Annual Turkey Giveaway on Tuesday. The event was held at the law firm at 625 E. Colonial Drive in Orlando. 

The giveaway started at 8:30 a.m., but dozens of people started lining up hours beforehand.
