THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED TO OUR APPEAL FOR TURKEYS FOR THANKSGIVING THIS PAST WEEK. WHEN THE COMPANY THAT USUALLY SUPPLIED TURKEYS FOR US DID NOT COME THROUGH WE TURNED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND THE RESPONSE WAS OVERWHELMING. WE RECEIVED OVER 400 TURKEYS (NEAR 5000 LBS) WHICH WE WERE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE TO 12 FOOD PANTRIES IN CAMBRIA COUNTY. AS OF TODAY MORE ARE STILL BEING DONATED. ANY WE DO NOT GET OUT FOR THANKSGIVING WILL BE STORED AND DISTRIBUTED FOR CHRISTMAS.
GOD BLESS ALL WHO DONATED AND MAY YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING.
