NORWALK - Stew Leonard's is trying to make this Thanksgiving a happy one for hundreds of families across southwestern Connecticut.

Stew's is donating nearly 650 turkeys to local churches, senior centers and schools who will then give them to families in need.

A representative for Stew's says they hope this act of kindness encourages the community to help those who are less fortunate during the holidays.

This is the 32nd year that Stew Leonard's has donated turkeys for the holiday.
