Each year Porter Regional Hospital gives back to their associates for the holidays. In particular, for Thanksgiving, they give away free turkeys for their holiday dinner. We were on the scene at Porter Regional Hospital and Portage Hospital to talk to some of Porter's turkey giveaway volunteers about why they like to be a part of the two day event, how it's one way that Porter cares, and how some giveaway their free turkeys to families who need it the most.
