Snoop Dogg Helps Give Out 1,500 Turkeys To Families In Need

The rapper spent the day in Inglewood, California, bonding with community members and spreading holiday cheer.

For the second year in a row, Snoop Dogg spent a day spreading holiday cheer in Inglewood, California -- with the help of hundreds upon hundreds of Thanksgiving turkeys.

Last Thursday, a week before Thanksgiving, Snoop Dogg joined Inglewood Mayor James Butts to give away more than 1,500 turkeys to local families in need.

The rapper took pictures with more than 800 people at the event, according to KNBC-TV. He's also said to have given out quite a few hugs.  

“This is a very big help for not only myself, but for about a thousand people,” resident Xiomara Payan told the news outlet of the turkey giveaway.

Snoop Dogg’s involvement in the giveaway began last year when he asked the city what he could do to give back to the community, reports the Associated Press.

At the time, Butts reportedly suggested that Snoop Dogg help give out turkeys at the event. The city gave out 800 turkeys last year.

According to the Good News Network, Snoop Dogg plans to continue this giveaway tradition in the coming years.

At last week's event, the rapper told the crowd that he considered Inglewood, where his production crew is headquartered, his “second home,” per TMZ.
