Mattress Mack provides free Turkey dinners to families

Jim “Mattress Mack” (left), along with Astros stars Alex Bregman and Max Stassi, provided Thanksgiving meals for needy families.

About 500 turkeys were distributed to families in need on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Gallery Furniture location on 6006 North Freeway.

“It’s part of our continuing responsibility for the well-being of the community and having Alex here just makes it that much better. People like him. He’s a very likable guy, great ballplayer and a great role model for all of us,” Mattress Mack said.

Families had to complete a form to be able to receive a turkey, and they are thankful because they will be able to have a Thanksgiving dinner.

Mattress Mack also hosted another complete feast on Thanksgiving day with food trucks, turkey and all the fixings from 11 am to 2 pm.
