About 1,500 frozen turkeys with all the trimmings were distributed free to North Bergen residents on Monday, Nov. 20 at the Recreation Center. The annual NB C.A.R.E.S Thanksgiving giveaway is designed to aid low income residents and families in need.
Mayor Nicholas Sacco was on hand to give out the turkeys along with bags containing gravy, stuffing mix, and more. He was joined by Commissioners Hugo Cabrera and Allen Pascual, along with Deputy Director of Parks & Recreation James Avella and a large group of dedicated volunteers.
In addition to the turkeys, the Nicholas J. Sacco Foundation gave out nearly $4,000 to eight local food pantries and churches. The township also partnered with AngelaCARES, Inc. to deliver hot Thanksgiving meals to over 400 senior citizens.
