ThanksGiving is once again around the corner!

Turkeys were distributed in front of my office to representatives of local churches, community-based organizations and senior centers on Saturday, November 17.

The turkeys were held in a Fresh Direct truck awaiting pick-up by designated nonprofits, including First Baptist Church, Make the Road New York, Woodside on the Move and the Corona Senior Center.

By Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, my Senate Office would have distributed 478 turkeys, including 24 that will go to the Rockaways, in coordination with the office of State Senator Malcolm Smith.

Fresh Direct is contributing 250 of the turkeys, while HealthPlus and Trade Fair are donating 104 each and Food Bazaar is contributing 20.
