For the second year, Rockford Rotary Club and D&W Fresh Market have teamed up for a tasty and timely donation to families in need. Rotary donated $1,500 from the service organization’s budget and D&W offered a great price to provide 140 turkeys to North Kent Community Services (NKCS), a faith-based organization serving over 10,000 families.
“This year every family that signed up for a food basket was able to receive a turkey,” said Ramona Hinton, who implemented the donation a year ago.
According to Hinton, last year the NKCS was unable to provide a turkey to every family who asked for one. Last year the donation provided 110 turkeys and this year D&W was able to help donate an additional 30 birds to ensure each family could enjoy a traditional meal on Thanksgiving Day.
