NWTF Edgefield Chapter Donates 173 Frozen Turkeys to Local Organizations


web posted November 21, 2008
EDGEFIELD – The Edgefield Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation stepped up to help less fortunate families in the area by offering warm smiles and hearty meals this holiday season. Through the Turkey Hunters Care program, the Edgefield Chapter provided 173 turkeys - a total of 1,038 meals - to families in the area to help complete the traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Volunteers distributed 45 frozen domestic turkeys to the NJROTC from Strom Thurmond High School and 50 turkeys to the Edgefield Department of Social Services on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at NWTF headquarters in Edgefield. Chapter volunteers then delivered 66 turkeys to the Johnston Food Bank and 12 turkeys to Edgefield First Baptist Church.

"The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are times for family, but they are also a time when many families are in need," said NWTF CEO George Thornton. "Turkey Hunters Care is a great way for the NWTF's volunteers to help these families during some of the most celebrated holidays of the year."

The NWTF is a national nonprofit conservation organization that was founded in 1973 and has worked with wildlife agencies to restore wild turkey populations from 1.3 million wild turkeys to nearly 7 million today. Now, NWTF's volunteers raise funds and work daily to improve critical wildlife habitat, increase access to public hunting land and introduce new people to the outdoors and hunting.
