Donate to our Turkey Drive
2019 Turkey Drive Update
On behalf of Det. Michael Sattler and the entire Wake Forest Police Department, thanks to everyone who donated to this year's Wake Forest Police Department Turkey Drive.
This year, we collected over $3,300 in online contributions. In addition, area residents dropped off over 200 turkeys during the Nov. 23 turkey drop-off event at the Police Department Main Station.
Altogether (including online and in-person contributions and donations of frozen turkeys), community members contributed over $7,300 to the 2019 Police Department Turkey Drive – a new record!
As a result of such incredible generosity, on Nov. 25, the Police Department gave away over 950 turkeys to disadvantaged families in our area – by far the most it has ever distributed.
