JOY-FM Targets 10,000 Turkeys for Bay Area Families
Sarastoa, FL — The JOY-FM has set a goal of collecting 10,000 frozen turkeys to distribute to families in the Tampa Bay area.
The station, which features contemporary Christian music, has been serving North, Central and Southwest Florida for more than 20 years.
"We are listener supported and appreciate the generous donations of our listeners, churches and business underwriters," a spokesperson said. "Last year 9,472 turkeys were donated. This year, more families than ever need our help. That’s why our goal this year is to collect 10,000 frozen turkeys."
The donated turkeys will go to freezers of local food banks and homeless shelters, organizers said, adding that, "From there they will be turned into food boxes, holiday meal plates, and the warmth of hope and God’s love for the unfortunate in our community, many of whom are children."
Each individual donor of a turkey will receive a Joy-FM T-shirt.
