The Herald Good News Fund’s 22nd annual drive to provide turkeys for Christmas to local families in need has collected $17,781.
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 are provided to local families through the Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County and its network of pantries.
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, PA 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.
