Police Department Turkey Drive is Underway

The Wake Forest Police Department is accepting donations through Saturday, November 22, as part of its eighth annual Turkey Drive.

Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Officer M.W. Sattler at 919-795-7270.

Cash and checks are accepted and will be used to buy turkeys. Checks should be written to the Wake Forest Police Department.

Frozen turkeys may be dropped off at the Wake Forest Police Department, 225 S. Taylor Street, from 9 a.m. until noon on November 22.

The police department will distribute the turkeys while they last from 9 to 11 a.m. on Monday, November 24, at the Wake Forest Community House, which is at 133 W. Owen Avenue.

Sattler organized the police department’s first Turkey Drive in 2007. Since then, the department has distributed more than 3,000 turkeys to needy families in our area, including over 700 turkeys last year.
