DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) A pawnshop in Danville has made many people very happy this Thanksgiving by supplying them with a turkey.

Riverside Pawn gave out 200 turkeys to various customers Wednesday.

The company started the tradition in 2007 by giving away around 25 turkeys to some of its best customers.

Each year, the number of turkeys has increased.

The company says its customers are loyal, so they like giving back to them.

"Our customers are what keeps us in business, so we just kind of want to give back to them. They help us out, and we want to be able to help them out as well," says Riverside Pawn Store Manager, Nathan Surface.

This year people could e-mail the pawnshop requesting a turkey if they knew of a family in need.

The turkeys were handed out at the company's seven locations.
