Friends In Service Helping is asking for turkey donations at its High Five Turkey Drive Thursday in Carson City. 

The food drive is in front of the Carson Nugget Curbside service right on Carson Street. 

Their goal is to collect 1,000 turkeys before Thanksgiving, to donate to families who need it most.  Alivia Flewellen, Manager of Client Services for FISH says, "We do have a lot of families, a lot of single parent households--we actually have a lot of grandparents taking care of grandchildren. They're trying to do it on just their social security, which isn't very much."

You can drop off frozen turkeys, and sides until 6 p.m. 

Or, FISH says you can donate $10 and they’ll do the shopping. Donate online at 

Families in need who want to sign up to receive a turkey, are required to visit their offices at 138 E. Long St. in Carson City to do so. 

They're also asking for volunteers to help assemble the holiday boxes, as well as help for the feast they will serve on Thanksgiving Day at the Carson Nugget.

For more information, or if you'd like to get involved, call FISH at 775-882-3474.
