Tully Rinckey & Price Chopper to Give Away Free Holiday Turkeys to Southern Tier Veterans and Active-Duty Military Service PersonnelPosted: Updated:
In an effort to show appreciation for the sacrifices of active duty service members, veterans, and their families, the veteran-owned law firm Tully Rinckey and Price Chopper Supermarkets will again provide free turkeys to active duty and retired military personnel through Tully Rinckey’s famed “Turkeys for Veterans” program. After the success of the November 2016 Turkeys for Veterans giveaway, the firm decided to continue spreading the holiday cheer this December as well.
Officials from Tully Rinckey and Price Chopper Supermarkets will hand-deliver almost 1,000 pounds of turkey to active duty service members and veterans at the law firm’s Binghamton office at 4100 Vestal Road on Thursday, December 22 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Turkeys will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis with proof of military ID and will be limited to one turkey per active duty service member or veteran.
The Turkeys for Veterans program has been a tradition at the firm’s Albany headquarters for the last eight years. This December marks the first year the firm is expanding the initiative to cover the month of December through its partnership with Price Chopper Supermarkets. Since the program’s inception in 2009, Tully Rinckey PLLC has provided the holiday table centerpiece for the family members of more than 2,000 active duty and retired military personnel.
“We’re excited to expand our highly successful Turkeys for Veterans program to include the month of December,” said Tully Rinckey Binghamton Managing Partner, Peter Charnetsky. “The program has become a very rewarding Thanksgiving tradition for our firm, and we are fortunate to have the resources to help brighten the holiday season for our Veterans. Turkeys for Veterans is also a way for us to honor the sacrifices our armed forces have made in standing up for our country, which is especially important to remember this time of year.”
“Price Chopper is pleased and proud to again partner with Tully Rinckey PLLC on the donation of holiday turkeys to veterans,” said Pam Cerrone, Price Chopper Director of Community Relations. “The holiday season is a time to reflect on the abundance in our lives, and a perfect time to express our gratitude for the sacrifices of our veterans and military and their families. The Price Chopper team is honored to continue our tradition of support of military and veterans with a donation of holiday turkeys.”
