The Salvation Army Holds Turkey Drop at Atlantis

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army is holding its annual Turkey Drop in the west parking lot of the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa today until 6 pm.

Doners can drive through and drop off donations of frozen turkeys or cash for those in need.

Organizers say on an average year they raise between 550 and 700 turkeys, but as demand increases they hope to serve even more in need this season.

"When we look in this community the number of people that are both underemployed or unemployed in our community we'll serve up to 3,000 families during this holiday season," says Major Michael Zielinski.

Last year they collected just over 300 turkeys.
