"We want families to enjoy this wonderful holiday without worry about how it will impact their checkbooks, so I encourage all residents of the 34th district who could use a little financial cushion this holiday to stop by one of the giveaway locations for a turkey."

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 Child Development Center
  • 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.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop
