Salvation Army Needs Turkeys to Help Local Families in Need

The Salvation Army is known for helping those in need during the holidays. But that support is only possible when the community supports the Salvation Army.  Right now, they need turkeys.  Here's a press release the Salvation Army, Solano County issued today:
SUISUN CITY, Calif. – The Salvation Army serving Solano County is in the midst of the 2nd Annual 12 Days of Turkey campaign with a goal of obtaining 900 turkeys for Christmas food boxes.  The first week of the drive has produced a couple hundred turkeys but over 700 are still needed to ensure all registered families in need receive a turkey for their Christmas dinner.  The drive runs through December 18th.
Donations are still very much needed and can be dropped off Monday –Friday from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM and 1:00 PM-4:00 PM at assorted Salvation Army locations across Solano County.

Monetary donations are also accepted and often area a more efficient way to go.

“The Salvation Army is fortunate enough to receive a non-profit discount for the purchase of turkeys,” said Captain Jonathan Harvey, Suisun City Kroc Center Administrator.  “We will be able to purchase turkeys for less than what the public would pay.  We are urging monetary donations because we will be able to make the public’s dollar really stretch.”

Monetary and turkey donations can be dropped off at the following locations:  

Fairfield: 1216 Missouri Street   (707) 426-6244
Suisun City: 278 A Sunset Ave  (707) 439-7880
Vacaville: 630 Orange Drive # M   (707) 455-8191      
Vallejo: 630 Tuolumne Street (707) 643-8621
