Second Harvest needs turkey for Thanksgiving
November 13, 2012, 05:00 AM

With Thanksgiving a little more than a week away, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties needs turkeys so that local pantries and soup kitchens that depend on Second Harvest for food can provide their clients with a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

This year’s goal is 12,000 turkeys and Second Harvest still needs nearly 6,000 turkeys.

Turkeys can be dropped off at Second Harvest Food Bank’s Curtner Center in San Jose, 750 Curtner Ave., and Bing Center in San Carlos, 1051 Bing St. The Food Bank has extended its dock hours to make donating easier. Turkeys should not be placed in the food collection barrels located throughout the community.

Second Harvest’s Bing Center dock is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.

"Enjoying a turkey dinner during the holidays, particularly at Thanksgiving, is an important tradition for many local families,” said Kathy Jackson, CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. "We need to meet our turkey goal so that families who want a turkey this holiday season can get one. We are also looking for cash donations because the families and individuals we serve will continue to need food after the holidays are over. With our purchasing power, Second Harvest can turn one dollar into two nutritious meals. A monetary donation will help us feed people all year long.”

For more information about holiday hours or to make a donation visit or call (866) 234-3663.
