Families in need ahead of Thanksgiving can receive a turkey and other goods such as stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes and canned vegetables from the local Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry.
The nonprofit is hosting its annual Turkey Drive outside of its offices located at 24133 Railroad Ave. in Newhall. This year, the pantry will distribute 150 turkeys now through Wednesday.
SCV Food Pantry is a nonprofit dedicated to alleviating hunger throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. Its goal is to meet the current and future hunger needs of SCV residents and ensure self-sufficiency through active partnerships with other organizations in the community.
Last year, the pantry donated 200 turkeys and 100 chickens with the help of the Santa Clarita Rotary Club.
