Willy’s Butcher Shop to give away 3,000 pounds of turkey to COVID-affected families


KNOXVILLE – William Carithers, master butcher and proprietor of Willy’s Butcher Shop in Bearden announced today that “Willy’s Great American Turkey Giveaway” will begin this Saturday, November 14 at 9:00 a.m. outside the store at 5115 Homberg Drive.

The 200-250 Grade A 10-14lb. turkeys will be given away to families who continue to be affected by COVID in some way, whether job loss, reduction in hours, furloughs, or other hardships. The turkeys will be handed out starting east of the store, so that traffic may continue onto Homberg or spill into adjacent parking lots. The turkeys will be handed to a person inside the car, with no need to exit the vehicle. As with the chicken giveaway earlier in the year, the turkeys will be handed out on the honor system, with no questions asked. Willy’s does hope to feed at least 200 families for Thanksgiving through this effort, so the shop encourages honesty.



For those who aren’t in need, Willy’s is offering spring-fed, organic, free-range whole turkeys and Berkshire hams for Thanksgiving inside the store. Masks are required.
