AVENAL, CA - USA Olympian Jose Ramirez and Kings County Supervisor Richard Valle (District 2) are teaming up to knock out hunger with “Operation Gobble,” a program to provide Thanksgiving turkeys to area families.

In what has become an annual tradition for District 2, Valle & Ramirez plan to give away approximately 650  turkeys to feed thousands of people throughout the district at events in Corcoran, Home Garden, Avenal, and Kettleman City.  "These communities have supported Jose from day one and he wants to support them back in any way he can" Rick Mirigian, agent for Ramirez.

The CrisCom Company, Western States Petroleum Association, and Waste Management, contributed to the effort.

"Jose Ramirez feels very deeply for the communities who have always supported him," said Bob Arum of Top Rank.

“I want to extend my gratitude to Jose Ramirez and the wonderful organizations that really came through for my constituents with their generous support this year,” said Supervisor Valle.  “With their help, we were able to provide a healthy and a happy Thanksgiving to many families in my district."

Jose Ramirez, 2012 USA Olympian, said  “on behalf of the residents of Avenal and throughout Kings County, I thank Supervisor Valle for his leadership and continued effort to distribute Thanksgiving turkeys to families. Together, we will fight hunger at a time when the water crisis has so many people out of work.” 

“To be able to help so many families is both personally and professionally rewarding for me,” continued Supervisor Valle.  “This time of year is a time for giving thanks for all that we have.  I am blessed to have wonderful friends and family and am proud to serve the communities of District 2."
