Turkeys will be given away to several organizations for distribution to residents. Each organization will have a limited supply. The following organizations are participating:

  • Isaiah House
  • Sierra House
  • East Orange Economic Development Corp.
  • East Orange Family Success Center
  • City if East Orange Division of Senior Services
  • East Orange Family Success Center
  • City of Orange Division of Senior Services

  • Montclair Neighborhood Development Corp.
  • New Hope Baptist Church
  • City of Clifton
  • Clifton Boys and Girls Club

"Thanksgiving is one of our most treasured holidays. It is a day of gratitude, family and good eating. No dinner table should go without the signature dish on Thanksgiving Day. I wish all our residents a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day," said Oliver.
