Local women’s fitness center hosts turkey drive
Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
Traditionally, this is a time to collectively give thanks. And most celebrate this holiday by gathering for a meal with family and friends. The traditional meals vary from turkey and wild rice dressing in northern U.S. and Canada to turkey and cornbread dressing in the south. Very different traditions, with one commonality -- turkey.
But not everyone will have a turkey. And Curves of Lebanon wants to help by hosting a Give a Gobble event Nov. 23 and 25. During this event, the Lebanon Curves will waive the initial service fee for any new member who brings in either a turkey or a $30 contribution, all to be donated to local churches for families in need.
"We chose this organization because we want everyone to be able to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our goal is to donate 15 turkeys and I think we can do it," said Janice Perrigo, owner of Curves.
The Give a Gobble event will be a time for long-term members and new members alike to have fun, get to know each other and help the community simultaneously. The festivities will include several activities and drawings.
Perrigo also said, "Give a Gobble is just a great way for us to get into the giving spirit and to also help those in need at the same time."
