Lakefield Foodland brightened Christmas for 250 families by giving away free turkeys to those in need.
“A lot of people can use a helping hand at this time of year and we wanted to offer our assistance to people in Lakefield and area,’ said Ross Bletsoe, co-owner, pictured.
“We purchased 250 frozen Grade A turkeys to give away to those in need. We support a lot of charities, non-profit organizations and sports groups, but this turkey give-away lets us put our assistance ‘right on the table’ for those who need it most.”
Turkeys were given away, one per family, on Tuesday, December 22 and Wednesday, December 23 between 11:00am and 4:00pm.
