The Wake Forest Police Department (WFPD) is accepting monetary donations through Saturday, Nov. 23, as part of its 13th Annual Turkey Drive. Area residents can support this worthy cause by submitting donations online via PayPal at http://bit.ly/2019TurkeyDrive.

Cash and checks written to the Wake Forest Police Department are also accepted. Anyone wishing to contribute cash or a check to this year’s Turkey Drive should contact Det. M.W. Sattler at 919-795-7270 or msattler@wakeforestnc.gov.

All monetary donations will be used to purchase additional turkeys.

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the police department will accept monetary donations and donations of frozen turkeys at the WFPD Main Station, 225 S. Taylor St., from 9 a.m. until noon.

Police officers and staff will distribute the turkeys while they last on Monday, Nov. 25, from 9-11 a.m., at the Wake Forest Community House, 133 W. Owen Ave.

Det. Sattler organized the police department’s first Turkey Drive in 2007. Since then, the department has distributed nearly 8,000 turkeys to needy families in our area, including over 800 turkeys last year.
