Herald’s turkey drive hits $1,860

MERCER COUNTY AREA — The Herald Good News Fund’s 21st annual drive that will provide turkeys for Christmas to local families in need has collected $1,860 so far.

The year-round fund is affiliated with the Community Foundation of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, created by local community leaders to benefit the entire Mercer County area.

Because the foundation is tax-exempt, all donations are tax-deductible.

From the donations, turkeys will be provided to local families through the Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County and its network of pantries.

For its 2013 food drive, The Good News Fund has set a goal of buying 1,200 turkeys for distribution in the Mercer County area.

People wanting to make a tax-free contribution should make their checks payable to The Good News Fund and mail them to Nancy Ash in care of The Herald, Box 51, Sharon 16146. Contributions may be dropped off at The Herald office, 52 S. Dock St., in Sharon or at the Allied News office in Grove City.

The fund offers readers the option of making a donation in the name of a friend or family member as a holiday gift idea.
