RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Salvation Army is asking the community to give back this holiday season and donate frozen turkeys for families in need.
The goal is to collect at least 3,000 turkeys this year.
The 17th annual Turkey Drop is hosted by News Talk 780 KOH in the west parking lot of the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa on the corner of Peckham Lane and S. Virginia.
The Salvation Army is asking for anyone who can help to stop by and drop off a frozen turkey, non-perishable food items, or cash.
Maj. Michael Zielinski with the Salvation Army says with the cut to SNAP benefits the need is out there.
"It's fulfilling, because of the joy we see in the eyes of those we're helping," Maj. Zielinksi says.
As of noon on Friday, Maj. Zielinski says they raised more than $4,000 and more than 100 turkeys so still a long way to go, but they're hoping for the evening rush.
The Turkey Drop ends at 6pm on Friday, Dec. 6.
If you can't make it out, call (775) 688-4555 to donate to the Salvation Army.
