The Salvation Army and Sheetz kicked off the 11th annual Turkey Drive Thursday.
Five-hundred-seventy-five families in Rockingham County will receive free turkeys for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Capt. Greg Shannon, Rockingham County Salvation Army, says that one turkey donated means any family will have a reason to celebrate this holiday season.
He says, "We take that and we give that to a family who wouldn't have a Thanksgiving or a Christmas. It puts food on their table to have a celebration and be able to have some family time together."
Those who donate will receive a $5 Sheetz gift card.
