The Barre Kiwanis Club and the Spaulding High School Key Club, with the help of Price Chopper, are once again combining their efforts to solicit turkeys to supply the local food shelves.
Last year the groups were able to give 120 turkeys to Central Vermont Community Action, Hedding Methodist Food Shelf, St. Monica’s Food Shelf, Websterville Food Shelf and the Presbyterian Church.
A $10.00 donation helps buy a 12 – 14 lb. turkey. You can make a check out to Barre Kiwanis for the purchase of a turkey, and mail it to P.O. Box 724, Barre, VT 05641, or give your donation to a Kiwanis or Key Club member.
You can also purchase a turkey at Price Chopper, letting them know at the register that you are donating the turkey, and they will store it for the turkey drive.
Turkeys need to be delivered to the food shelves during the week of November 18th, so please donate between Monday – November 4th and Thursday – November 21st. The sooner the better in helping to plan buying and delivering the turkeys.
In these economically hard times, Barre Kiwanis Club and SHS Key Club hope to help those less fortunate, and wish everyone a warm, safe and loving holiday dinner. Please donate to the turkey drive if you can.
