Families in need to get donations through Turkey Hunters Care

TERRE HAUTE — United Way of the Wabash Valley, in partnership with Sycamore Ridge Strutters Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, too giveaway 75 frozen turkeys on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

The Sycamore Ridge Strutters Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is helping less fortunate families in the area by offering warm smiles and hearty meals this holiday season.

Volunteers with the Sycamore Ridge Strutters Chapter distributed 75 frozen domestic turkeys to United Way of the Wabash Valley and 25 to the First Church of the Nazarene.

“The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are times for family, but they are also a time when many families are in need,” said NWTF CEO George Thornton. “Turkey Hunters Care is a great way for the NWTF’s committed volunteers to help these families during some of the most celebrated holidays of the year.”

United Way of the Wabash Valley will distribute 75 frozen turkeys at the Booker T. Washington Community Center parking lot from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21. First come, first served. Limit one turkey per household.

“We are thrilled that The Sycamore Ridge Strutters Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation made this very generous gift to our community,” Troy Fears, UWWV executive director, said. “This will help ensure that many families in the area will have a Thanksgiving to remember.”
