Turkeys needed for social service group's annual drive

Here's a simple way to spread holiday cheer this month: donate a turkey to Volunteers of America.

The Greater Sacramento and Northern Nevada chapter of the organization is collecting fresh or frozen turkeys to serve as the main course for holiday meals at area homeless shelters, transitional living programs and affordable-housing residences this Thanksgiving.

Turkey donations are being accepted from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day through Nov. 25 at the Volunteers of America central kitchen facility at 700 North Fifth St., Sacramento, according to a news release from the organization.

The organization also is collecting money for the campaign. Donations may be made online, by mail or at the Volunteers of America administration office at 1900 Point West Way, Suite 270, Sacramento.

For more information, visit the organization's Web site or call (916) 442-3691 or e-mail Kim Castaneda.
