VESTAL, N.Y. -

Catholic Charities of Broome is holding  it's annual Thank-For-Giving Turkey Drive outside the Vestal Walmart. The goal is to collect 3800 turkeys, food and donations for families in Broome County.  As of Wednesday they have only received 400 turkey donations.

"What we like to see is kids offering, giving and being supportive of their community. And even if we can only do it for this week, I think its important to get your kids down here and show them the true meaning of a Thanksgiving holiday," said Mary Whitcombe

Catholic Charities partnered with Mix 103.3 as part of the harvest for Hunger Campaign. The event will run until 6 P.M. Friday.
