Junior League of Bronxville Helps Distribute Turkeys
The Junior League of Bronxville partnered with the Food Bank for Westchester and Beulah Seventh Day Adventist Church on Thursday, Nov. 20, to donate 225 turkeys to families in need in Mount Vernon.
This event was part of Westchester’s annual Turkey Campaign run by the Food Bank for Westchester, which provides 5,000 turkeys each Thanksgiving holiday.
Thirteen volunteers from the JLB distributed turkeys and desserts to the families. According to Wilma Joseph, who administers the Food Bank for Westchester’s Kraft Mobile Food Pantry Progam at Beulah Church, families started lining up for the distribution around 1 a.m.
