The Wake Forest Police Department (WFPD) is now accepting monetary donations through Saturday, Nov. 21, as part of its 14th Annual Turkey Drive. Area residents can support this worthy cause by submitting online donations via PayPal at http://bit.ly/WFPDTurkeyDrive.
Cash and checks written to the Wake Forest Police Department are also accepted. Anyone wishing to contribute cash or a check to this year’s Turkey Drive should contact Det. M.W. Sattler at 919-795-7270 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to COVID-19, the police department is currently accepting monetary donations only to this year’s Turkey Drive. Donations of frozen turkeys will not be accepted at this time. All monetary donations will be used to purchase additional turkeys.
Officials are considering several options for safely distributing the turkeys this year. Additional information will be provided once plans are finalized.
Det. Sattler organized the police department’s first Turkey Drive in 2007. Since then, the department has distributed nearly 9,000 turkeys to needy families in our area, including over 800 turkeys last year.
