The Salvation Army’s annual Operation Turkey Drop event is happening right now!
Corwin Ford has kindly offered to host the Operation Turkey Drop turkey drive at his dealership at 3600 Kietzke Lane from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on November 19.e.
They are accepting donations from the community which will provide Christmas meals to neighbors in need.
The community is invited to come to Corwin Ford during the campaign to donate any protein that will be distributed by The Salvation Army at its annual Christmas gift giveaway in December.
Although turkeys are preferred, the Salvation Army recognizes that they can be difficult to find and more expensive than some community members can afford to purchase as a charitable donation.
Thus, they will also take all proteins, including Christmas hams and chickens.
Corwin Ford and our other community partner, Helix Electric, will be making generous turkey donations to help kick off the event.
Washoe County Search and Rescue will be on hand throughout the day to help accept donations from the community.
“We are grateful to Corwin Ford and Helix Electric for their partnership in this important event,” said Maj. Darren Trimmer, Washoe County Coordinator of the Salvation Army. “Need knows no season, and the community of Washoe County always comes together to help The Salvation Army meet the needs of their neighbors who might otherwise go without.”
