“I don’t make any stuffing,” he said. “I put an onion, an apple and a couple of other things inside the turkey to give it some flavor.” Negron said he’ll be preparing another meal with his own family the day after Thanksgiving since his mother, a registered nurse, also has to work Thanksgiving Day. “They’re doing ham,” he said. “My Mom’s making her homemade mac ‘n cheese, I’m making mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, and my sister’s making pumpkin pie.”
The Thanksgiving Day items were donated by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Mike Alstott, who has made it a tradition to deliver holiday meals to firehouses throughout the area.
