Raleigh Rescue Mission desperately needs turkeys

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The Raleigh Rescue Mission says it urgently needs 50 10-12 lb fresh or frozen turkeys by Thursday.

"This year we were off to, seemed to be, a slower start. We knew we had some commitments for large quantities of turkeys we thought were going to come in. But a lot of our canned goods, side dishes, we were a little behind so to speak," explained Brace Boone III with the Raleigh Rescue Mission.

The staff is preparing now to provide more than 900 Thanksgiving meals for residents as well as its Gobbles to Go outreach.

The mission says it needs the turkeys by Thursday to have time to thaw and prepare them in time for Thanksgiving.

Please drop off turkeys at 314 E. Hargett St., Downtown Raleigh, Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm.
