Port area residents respond to appeal for turkey help

(Continued)

“We have limited freezer space at the Salvation Army, we probably only have enough to store 40,” Brunelle said. “So the owners there have been gracious enough to allow us to use some of their freezer space.”

Local schoolchildren have also been generous. The River Valley Charter School held a fundraiser in which funds were collected in exchange for pies, but instead of giving pies to the donors, they will be donated to the Salvation Army. And Brown School children made their usual pilgrimage to the Salvation Army with cartfuls of donated food this week.

The Salvation Army has been holding a Thanksgiving dinner distribution annually for decades, and in addition to turkeys, the organization also collects other holiday staples like mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberries.

The Salvation Army is located at 40 Water Street and can be contacted at 978-465-0883.
