WFSB Turkey Urges For More Turkeys

During lunchtime today, WFSB's famous turkey, Scot Haney stopped by Foodshare to publicize our Turkey and Thirty campaign. Many Foodshare staff members including President and CEO, James Arena-DeRosa, joined Scot during the live coverage encouraging folks to contribute.

James made the following statement:

“This happens every year…we still have over 5,000 families hoping for turkeys early next week, but after tomorrow’s distribution we will have no birds left in the freezer. Fortunately we have many, many drives happening this weekend and if history has taught us anything, it’s that the Greater Hartford community always rallies.” 

During his afternoon appearance, Scot recognized LEGO for a very generous gift of $23,000, Enterprise for a $14,000 donation, and the owner of Zen Yoga Barre, Robin who presented Foodshare with a $5,000 check.

Thank you to all of the individuals and organizations who continually support our work to ensure those who are struggling in Greater Hartford have a place at the table.
