GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- The holiday season is kicking off in West Michigan and Mel Trotter Ministries wants to make the holidays bright for families in need. This is a great opportunity to give back during the annual “Turkey Drop” where Mel Trotter Ministries hopes to receive 1,500 donated turkeys. Here’s how you can participate:

Turkeys will be given out through the MTM food pantry throughout the holiday season. MTM will supplement other local pantries with extra turkeys.
