INGLEWOOD–The Los Angeles Rams and their mascot Rampage were tossing turkeys in the trunks of cars on a brisk morning to help out the citizens of Inglewood for Thanksgiving.

The city held its 9th annual turkey giveaway event Tuesday at SoFi Stadium, donating about 2,500 frozen turkeys to those in need and 500 more to senior centers. Each resident who signed up got a free turkey and a box of sides.

SoFi Stadium officials said registration has reached capacity the last three years it’s been hosted at Hollywood Park.

“Food security is an important facet in all our lives,” said Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts in a recent statement. “It’s important no matter the season, but we hope this event will not only bring some relief for those residents experiencing hardships, but also bring everyone some much needed holiday cheer.”

The city teamed up with the Los Angeles Rams for the giveaway, making for an exciting morning for fans.

The Los Angeles Rams are teaming up with community partners to kick off their inaugural 5-week ‘Season of Giving’ campaign on Tuesday, November 21, by supporting a turkey giveaway for Inglewood residents as well as a holiday meal and grocery distribution for South Los Angeles community members served by A Place Called Home.

In addition, the entire Rams rookie class will join the North East Lincoln Rams and Watts Rams youth football programs for a “Ramsgiving” holiday dinner in partnership with Nike.

Rams linebacker Ernest Jones and some of the Rams cheerleaders were there to help spread some holiday cheer.

“I’m most thankful for family,” said Jones at Tuesday morning’s event. “I’m super appreciative to just be out here giving back, just seeing the smiling faces, to see everyone happy for receiving turkey, receiving help this Thanksgiving, means a lot to me, so I’m just excited to be out here.”

Other donated items include 2,000 boxes of produce with 5lbs russet potatoes, 2lbs carrots, and 3lbs Granny Smith apples in each box from Melissa’s, a specialty produce distributor. In addition, the event day will be supported by over 150 community and corporate volunteers.

Many thanks go out to the Rams organization for this kind gesture to the community. May everyone have a Happy Ramsgiving.
