LA CAR & NEWS WIRE (Thanksgiving, 2010)—10,000. That’s the number of turkeys given away by EJ Jackson. Twenty-three. That’s the number of years he’s been doing it, as a way of giving back to the community his business—Jackson Limousine Service—serves. This year, the thanks-giving came to 10,000 residents of South Los Angeles as they lined up for the annual turkey give-away. “I want to put the ‘happy’ back into Thanksgiving for senior citizens on fixed-incomes and the needy families,” said EJ Jackson. Jackson Limousine Service provided the turkeys, while sponsors and volunteers helped with contributing many of the dinner fixings: cornbread, greens, yams, cranberry sauce and more. “The lines stretched for several blocks,” said KABC 7’s Melissa MacBride. “Hundreds of people camped out in the cold in the Crenshaw District to get a turkey and all the trimmings,” reported Leo Stallworth of KABC. "I'm very grateful. If it had not been for Jackson Limousine, I don't know where I would've been getting my Thanksgiving dinner from this year," South Los Angeles resident Ramona Gibson told MacBride, who reportedly camped out since Saturday night. "I'm so overwhelmed. I just can't believe it. I just thank God. I said a prayer before I left the house, and he answered it," said 91-year-old Ida Singleton told KABC.
