JOIN US FOR TURKEYTHON!
Does your family or organization want to donate to or volunteer for a charity this holiday season, but you don't know where to start? Thanksgiving is when we typically reflect on what we are thankful for and how we can give back to others. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, this year it is more important than ever to help where you can. There are many ways you can dedicate both your time and money to individuals in need this holiday season, whether in-person, virtually, or by phone.
As you know, Bill Otto’s Oldies Attic Turkeython has been raising money for families in all of Indiana County for over 30 years. Through this annual Turkeython event, Bill recommends distribution of turkeys, funds for meals or certificates for food and other essential items to local organizations to enable individuals and families in need to celebrate the holidays. The holidays are when most families are trying to provide food, gifts, and a joyous time for their families and children. Often times, there is also the ongoing struggle with trying to provide for your family, and pay monthly bills. Donations such as yours are distributed to organizations like the Salvation Army of Indiana County, Chevy Chase Community Center, Blairsville and Homer City Food Pantries, homeless veterans organizations and many others.
