Every year, my office supports the North Valley YMCA annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive to give turkey dinners to families that may otherwise have difficulty affording a Thanksgiving meal.
This year was no different as my staff deployed across the Valley to ensure that families in need received a bountiful Thanksgiving basket including fresh produce and all the fixings in addition to a turkey. All accounted for, the YMCA program successfully delivered 3600 baskets this year to over 30 schools and youth groups. From those 3600 baskets, approximately 10,000 individuals will be able to enjoy a family Thanksgiving meal.
I would like to thank the YMCA for continuing this incredible program for all these years and congratulate them on another successful year of helping families in our community.
