Volume 16, Number 8
The Wake Forest Police Department is now accepting monetary donations through Saturday, Nov. 18, as part of its 11th annual Turkey Drive.
This year the police department is making it easier than ever for area residents to support this worthy cause by accepting online donations via PayPal at www.wakeforestnc.gov/donate-to-our-turkey-drive.aspx.
Cash and checks written to the Wake Forest Police Department are also being accepted. Anyone wishing to contribute cash or a check to this year’s Turkey Drive should contact Officer M.W. Sattler at 919-795-7270.
All monetary donations will be used to purchase additional turkeys.
On Saturday, Nov. 18, the police department will accept donations of frozen turkeys at the Wake Forest Police Department Main Station, located at 225 S. Taylor St., from 9 a.m. until noon.
Police officers and staff will distribute the turkeys while they last on Monday, Nov. 20, from 9 to 11 a.m., at the Wake Forest Community House, 133 W. Owen Ave.
Officer Sattler organized the police department’s first Turkey Drive in 2007. Since then, the department has distributed nearly 6,000 turkeys to needy families in our area, including over 800 turkeys last year.
