Brooksby Village to Raise Hundreds of Dollars for Haven from Hunger

Thursday, November 17 at 12pm with Haven from Hunger

Peabody, MA - Hundreds of people who live and work at Brooksby Village and one large turkey will participate in the annual Turkey Trot at Brooksby Village on Thursday, November 17 at 12pm. Over the last few weeks, people donated canned goods and other food donations and both will be presented to Haven From Hunger before the walk at 11:45am.  Then, at 12pm  walkers will walk a mile around the campus to help raise money for the purchase of turkeys for Haven From Hunger. "This is an annual event so it's nice to see everyone turn out year after year to help Haven From Hunger," said Stefanie Fuller, Fitness Specialist, Brooksby Village.   "We were able to raise over $1000 last year, collect cases full of canned goods and donate 100 turkeys so we hope to collect even more this year." If you would like to cover the walk at 12pm or the presentation of the food donations at 11:45am, please call Dani Baldassare at 978/536-7905.
