About 125 Syracuse-area veterans and service members received free turkeys this week as part of an annual giveaway hosted by a local law firm.

Tully Rinckey and Price Chopper teamed up on Monday to provide 1,800 pounds of turkey at Syracuse University’s college of law. The law firm and supermarket chain are also handing out turkeys in the Albany, Binghamton, Rochester and Buffalo areas to 2,000 active duty and retired military personnel.

Many of Tully Rinckey’s attorneys are veterans of the armed forces. The firm has been holding the giveaway since 2009.
