LOS ANGELES, CA -- Snoop Dogg has helped deliver more than 1,500 turkeys to families in Inglewood, California.

Mayor James Butts tells KNBC-TV that the rapper joined him for Thursday's giveaway at an indoor arena and that he took pictures with hundreds of people at the event.

This is the second year the rapper has helped Inglewood pass out the turkeys to families in need. Last year, the rapper asked the city what he could do to give back to the community, where his production crew is headquartered.

Butts says he suggested the rapper help pass out turkeys.

The city passed out 800 turkeys at last year's event.
