Sacramento Food Bank hopes to get 7,000 turkeys on Nov. 19

By Dixie Reid

The folks at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services anticipate a busy holiday season - and they're looking for a little help.

On Nov. 19, donors can drop off frozen turkeys and packaged side dishes such as stuffing, pumpkin pie filling, green beans and potatoes at the agency's Oak Park facility.

Donations can be made from 4:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 3333 Third Ave. in Sacramento.

Last year, Sacramentans delivered 6,592 frozen turkeys to the food bank, and all went to families in our community. This year, the agency needs 7,000 turkeys to ensure everyone it serves has a happy Thanksgiving.
