The donated turkey and other nonperishable foods will assist families and individuals throughout New Jersey in putting a traditional Thanksgiving meal on the table.

"Celebrating the holidays when there are no resources to make them special is hard," says an appeal from the high school organizers of the event. "Together, let’s make sure that everyone has a reason to be grateful this holiday,"
