It’s almost Thanksgiving, and thankfully, some of our neighbors in need will have some turkey to eat.
State Senator Jose Peralta and Woodside on the Move teamed up with local community organizations to donate more than 700 turkeys to faith-based groups, schools, senior centers and daycare centers, all of which will be provided in meals for families in need.
“As we reflect during these times, it is imperative to give thanks and help families who are less fortunate,” Peralta says. “This event is about giving back to the community, and assisting those who are struggling by providing them with a free turkey.”
Partnering organizations include Foodtown, CRE Adult Day Care Center, C-Town, World Fair Marina Restaurant, Con Edison, the LeFrak Organization and the Ferrari Driving School.
