Broomfield FISH asking for frozen turkeys, hams ahead of Thanksgiving

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Broomfield FISH hopes to stock their marketplace with two Thanksgiving staples this Saturday.

The nonprofit is hosting its turkey and ham drive from noon to 2 p.m., and community members are asked to bring frozen turkeys and hams to the drive-thru drop-off in front of their building at 6 Garden Center.

“We are collecting these high-need foods to ensure that the families we serve have what they need to gather together and celebrate the holidays with special, healthy meals,” FISH Communications and Media Manager Maggie Sava said. “Last year was the first year we held this drive, and we collected 200 all together.”

Sava said FISH is looking to more than double last year’s donations, with a goal of collecting 500 turkeys and hams for residents in need.

Individuals who can’t make the drop-off but still would like to contribute can make a monetary donation at coloradogives.org/BroomfieldFISH.

FISH is asking that individuals only bring frozen turkeys or hams Saturday and not other food items, Sava noted.

The frozen donations will be stored in a large freezer truck provided by Fred and Kathy Ambrusch of Mile High Transportation Services, Inc.
