HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- The Salvation Army's Annual Turkey Drive kicked off at the beginning of November.
Its goal is to try to feed hundreds of families this year.
Earlier Thursday, The Salvation Army received some big news, Cargill called with a very generous offer.
The company will be donating 1,000 turkeys to the Salvation Army this year.
That's about 800 more than they were able to donate last year.
Capt. Duane Burleigh was overcome with joy.
"I cried. It means so much to me to be able to take care of this community, to meet the needs of those who are hurting. I've seen the difference a meal can make in a person's life," said Burleigh.
The Salvation Army is still in need of more turkeys.
You can drop off turkeys at the Salvation Army Worship Center on Ashby Avenue in Harrisonburg.
