Rockford Rotary, D&W donate turkeys for holidays

Dinner is on us—Rotarian Ramona Hinton, D&W Store Director Char Bouwkamp, John Leale of NKCS, and Rotarian Dave Robach prepare to unload 130 turkeys for families in need just in time for Thanksgiving Day.

 

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.
