The Wake Forest Police Department will accept frozen turkey donations on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon, as part of its 9th Annual Turkey Drive. Police officers will be available at the main station, 225 S. Taylor St., throughout the morning to thank donors and unload the turkeys.
According to Officer M.W. Sattler, founder and organizer of the Turkey Drive, the three-hour drop-off event will allow the department to effectively coordinate the storage of the donated turkeys.
Officers will also accept monetary donations and gift cards which will be used to purchase additional turkeys. Checks should be written to the Wake Forest Police Department.
To date, the department has received enough donations to purchase approximately 400 turkeys.
The police department will distribute the turkeys to disadvantaged families while they last on Monday, Nov. 23, from 9-11 a.m., at the Wake Forest Community House, 133 W. Owen Ave. There is a limit of one free turkey per family.
