Cardinal Dolan Helps Hand Out Thanksgiving Turkeys In Harlem: 'A Great Time In The Life Of The Community'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Gov. Kathy Hochul, Timothy Cardinal Dolan and Catholic Charities joined together Tuesday to ensure as many New Yorkers as possible are able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

They helped distribute 1,000 turkeys with all the fixings to people in need at the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Community Center in Harlem.

Dolan said, for him, the Tuesday before Thanksgiving marks the start of a beautiful season.

"Not only is this the intro to our national feast of Thanksgiving, but it's also kind of the opening pitch for the season of generosity," he said. "It's a great time in my own life and I think a great time in the life of the community."
