Having seen the news, the Kardashian Jenner family reached out and donated enough turkeys in order to make enough meals for those in need.
Along with turkeys, the reality stars donated, ’50 gallons of milk, 50 lbs of butter, 150 lbs of produce and herbs, and 450 pies,’ according to Pasadena Now.
Earlier on Thursday, officials from Union Station Homeless Services commented on the family helping out ahead of the holiday.

The Kardashian Jenner family have been involved with other charity work in the past. Kim has donated to a number of charities, such as the Armenia Fund, in which she donated $1 million.
According to Page Six, last year in 2021, Kim donated $3,000 to a mother’s GoFundMe page, due to her struggle to pay bills to keep her home.
‘Kim did donate. She meant to do it anonymously and she gave the full amount the mother was asking for when she posted it, which was $3,000,’ a source informed the publication.
Kylie Jenner is a current Smile Train ambassador since 2016, according to the nonprofit’s website.

The mother of two had launched a lip kit and donated 100% of the funds to the nonprofit, according to Smile Train’s official website.
For her 22nd birthday, Kendall had started a campaign for Charity Water and asked friends and family, along with fans, to donate rather than gifting her items. In the end, the campaign raised around $67,000, according to Insider.
Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, personally flew to Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake to offer assistance, such as donating medical supplies.
According to the publication, other family members such as Khloe Kardashian, also are involved in their own charity work. However, she has a preference not to ‘advertise’ the donations.
