While many people get up early Thanksgiving morning to start basting and baking one turkey for their families, Jo-Jo Shabani, owner of River Falls Family Restaurant, 702 N. Main St., plans to cook 10-12 Thanksgiving turkeys this year.

He plans to give them all away.

“If people are in need of help, it makes me feel good to help them,” Shabani said. “We give to everybody. Whoever wants to come and eat.”
