Annual T-Shirts for Turkeys event set for Nov. 7-10
From Staff Reports
The Joy FM and 1st Franklin Financial are teaming up again this year to help local families in need as the annual T-Shirts for Turkeys event returns.
This four-day happening begins Monday, November 7 and runs through Thursday, November 10. Both The Joy FM and 1st Franklin Financial needs the public’s help in stocking the freezers of the many area food banks and ministries who feed the local, hurting families.
People are asked to donate frozen turkeys at designated Chick-fil-A drop-off points. When folks donate a turkey, they will receive a newly designed Joy FM T-shirt. $10 gift cards from any local grocery store and cash are also accepted.
Those turkeys, which are dropped off, go immediately to the freezers of the food banks and homeless shelters. From there, those turkeys will be turned into food boxes, holiday meal plates and the warmth of hope and God’s love for the unfortunate in this community, many of whom are children.
1st Franklin Financial of Newnan will be at each of the designated Coweta County drop-off locations on their selected days of the event. Below is 1st Franklin Financial schedule.
