Volume 15, Number 50
The annual Wake Forest Police Department Turkey Drive needs your help now. It is far short of the 800-plus turkeys donated to needy families last year. Surely this generous community can get the number to 850 0r 900 this year.
“We have enough money as of now for approximately 580 turkeys based upon current pricing,” Officer M.W. Sattler said Monday. “I am unsure of what will arrive Saturday as it varies each year. It could be none or it could be150, you never know.”
Donating money is easy. The department has set up a PayPal account for online donations at www.wakeforestnc.gov/donate-to-our-turkey-drive.aspx. You can also donate cash or checks or frozen turkeys on Saturday, Nov. 18, at the Wake Forest Police Department Main Office at 225 South Taylor Street from 9 a.m. to noon.
The 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 West Owen Avenue.
Officer Sattler organized the police department’s first Turkey Drive in 2007 and since then the department has distributed nearly 6,000 turkeys.
