Harry Chapin Food Bank seeking turkey donations

November 10, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The Harry Chapin Food Bank is asking the community to donate 3,000 tur-keys so those in need can have a Thanksgiving dinner.

The food bank has purchased $37,500 in gift cards at $10 each to distribute to families via partner agencies. The cards are designated for the purchase of food at local supermarkets for holiday meals.

These gift cards are often more economical and efficient for clients, be-cause they can purchase their turkeys, chickens or other Thanksgiving food at the sale prices offered by the stores, making their dollar stretch further.

However, the food bank could only afford to purchase 3,750 gift cards. Center officials say more turkeys will be needed so that families can celebrate Thanksgiving.

Those who wish to donate turkeys or chickens can drop them off at the food bank's Fort Myers Distribution Center or the new Collier County Center in Naples.

Below are the addresses and drop-off hours:


3760 Fowler St.

Fort Myers, FL


Hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday

(Please bring donations no later than 3:30 p.m.)


3940 Prospect Ave. #101

Naples, FL


Hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
