2nd Annual Food Drive to benefit Lower Fairfield County Food Bank on November 23rd
Norwalk, CT (November 7, 2013) – On Saturday, November 23, from 10am-2pm, Ed’s Garage Doors at 136 Water Street in South Norwalk will host its 2nd Annual “Operation Turkey: Feeding Fairfield County Families” to help families in need this holiday season.
Rich Cunningham, owner and president of Ed’s Garage Doors, established “Operation Turkey” in 2012 after seeing a local news story about the severe shortage of turkeys at local food banks, due in part to recovery efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Cunningham’s goal for 2013 is to surpass last year’s collection of more than 500 turkeys and over 500 pounds of non-perishable food.
WEBE108 will be broadcasting live from the event from 10am-12noon, and all attendees who bring a donation will be entered into a special giveaway on-site.
“With our donation and generous gifts from our partners at LiftMaster and Northwest Door, we already have a jump start on last year’s collection,” said Cunningham. “And with WEBE108 broadcasting at the event this year, we anticipate increased community attendance and continued enthusiastic support for the cause.”
“We’ve been part of the Norwalk community for more than 40 years,” added Cunningham. “We know how generous our neighbors can be, and we’re looking forward to helping The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County as they work to feed families for the holidays again this year.”
The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County will have trucks on-site to accept all turkey and canned good donations. Monetary donations will also be accepted. 100% of all donated items will be delivered directly to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County and will be distributed to “in-need” residents this holiday season.
