Operation Turkey Food Drive is On

9 November 2014 No Comment

Operation Turkey
Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative’s group of employee volunteers, NOVEC HELPS, is asking area residents to donate non-perishable food to the Operation Turkey drive to help provide Thanksgiving meals for low-income people in Prince William County.

NOVEC HELPS will accept non-perishable food donations through Nov. 13 at three offices. Then SERVE and ACTS (Action in Community Through Service) will distribute the food to people who need assistance. Anyone requiring a receipt must drop donated items at the SERVE or ACTS locations.

“One of NOVEC’s guiding principles is to serve the community with more than electricity. Helping to feed the needy through Operation Turkey is one way NOVEC and its members serve others every November,” said NOVEC HELPS Executive Director Donna Snellings.

Suggested Food Items
Breads and muffin mixes, Bisquick, instant mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, boxed desserts, sugar, flour, evaporated milk, pie crusts, and canned meats, vegetables, cranberry sauce, fruits, pie filling, and gravy.
