Turkey-thon feeds Calera families

Published 5:21 pm Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Calera Middle School’s Student Government Association raised over $1,000 in their first annual turkey-thon.

Students purchased more than 2,000 paper turkeys for 50 cents each in an effort to form the longest turkey line.

All of the money went towards purchasing turkeys and providing Thanksgiving dinners for several area families in need.

The food was delivered to local families and churches by the school’s SGA.
