A citywide real estate company distributed 400 free kosher turkeys to residents of one of their buildings in Kew Gardens Hills ahead of Thanksgiving.
Volunteers from A&E Real Estate set up tables outside their office at the The Opal building on Tuesday, Nov. 14, to distribute the turkeys to local residents as a way to kick off the holiday season.
“It’s our pleasure to make celebrating Thanksgiving a little easier by distributing turkeys to our neighbors and to residents at The Opal and Kew Gardens Hills,” said Maggie McCormick, president of A&E Real Estate. “We want to thank our A&E volunteers and all community members for coming out and getting into the holiday spirit.”
State Assemblymember Sam Berger, who represents and lives in the area, also participated in the event.
A&E Real Estate, founded in 2011, focuses on workforce housing by investing in multifamily properties across the city. Their residents include hospital workers, teachers, bus drivers along with police and fire personnel.
