CHARLOTTE – Charlotte Rescue Mission needs turkeys for its Thanksgiving Food box program, so president and CEO Tony Marciano decided to become one.
Marciano dressed like a Thanksgiving turkey Nov. 16 to solicit donations, as the nonprofit needs 1,200 frozen turkeys by Nov. 21. Community members can drop them off at Charlotte Rescue Mission seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
“The Thanksgiving food box provides a complete Thanksgiving meal for our most fragile neighbors to enjoy in their home,” Marciano said. “We want families to create memories around their own table.”
