Anchorage’s Thanksgiving Blessing Distribution Set For Monday

This Monday Anchorage families who otherwise couldn’t afford a traditional Thanksgiving meal can go to various locations across the municipality to receive a turkey and all the holiday fixings.   As KSKA’s Len Anderson reports, the distribution centers have all the turkeys they need, but a few still worry they’re a little short of side dishes.
