+ Turkey drive needs donations
The United Food Bank of Plant City’s third annual Turkey Drive started Sunday, Nov. 1, and will continue through the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Turkeys are needed to complete the Thanksgiving meal boxes, which will be distributed to those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. Turkeys can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, with extended hours until 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at the United Food Bank of Plant City, 702 E. Alsobrook, Suite H.
The UFB served more than 450 complete Thanksgiving meals to families in need in 2014. The demand on its pantry has tremendously increased and the UFB expects even more families to be in need this year. All meals help families in Eastern Hillsborough County and Plant City.
