(TRENTON) - Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver will host a turkey giveaway benefitting 34th district residents on Tuesday, November 20, 2012. The turkeys will be given to churches and non-profits in and around the district that will then either distribute the turkeys to families or prepare the turkeys to feed needy families in Essex and Passaic counties.
"Thanksgiving is one of our most cherished holidays. It's a time to reflect and enjoy some wonderful food with our loved ones. Sadly, not all families can afford a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, so we're hoping to ease the expense with this giveaway," said Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic). "No one should have to forgo the traditional turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, so I encourage all residents of the 34th district who could use a little help this holiday season to stop by one of the participating organizations to pick up a turkey."
Speaker Oliver will distribute 500 turkeys donated by Shoprite of East Orange and their parent company Village Super Market, Inc. to various organizations.
