Officials with the Daviess County Public Schools district are collecting food to help families in Daviess County have a happy Thanksgiving.
From 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18, several DCPS school buses decorated to look like turkeys will be parked at several different locations, where area community members can stop by with donations of non-perishable food items, along with hygiene and personal care products.
Items can be donated at the following locations until 5:00 p.m.:
- Walmart – 5031 Frederica St.
- Walmart – 3151 Kentucky 54
- Kroger – 2630 Frederica St.
The Foundation for DCPS has worked with Kentucky Legend to obtain a donation of 2,000 pounds of ham, and Farbest is donating 200 turkey breasts, which will be the centerpiece in these Thanksgiving baskets.
If enough donations are received during the Stuff the Turkey event, DCPS says the remaining items will also be shared with families during the Christmas season and throughout the year.
