Costco Donates a Ton of Turkeys to Montco Police Food Drive

Employees of Costco donated 84 turkeys to Montgomery Township Police for the Montgomery County Law Enforcement Food Drive. The turkeys were then dropped off at the Salvation Army in Norristown for distribution

Employees of Costco Wholesale in Montgomery Township on Dec. 4 donated 84 turkeys, totaling 2,000 pounds or one ton, toward the Montgomery County Law Enforcement Food Drive.

The turkeys were given to Officer Jim Matlack of Montgomery Township Police for donation to the food drive.

Matlack, in turn, delivered the turkeys to Salvation Army in Norristown to be distributed to food banks in the county.

The county Law Enforcement Food Drive runs to Dec. 20.

There are drop off locations throughout the area. A complete listing, and details about the drive can be found at http://www.greaternorristownpal.org/Events.htm. We're also looking for volunteers to help box and load the food on the afternoon/evening of December 19th. Email brett.wells@greaternorristownpal.org if you're interested in helping.

I just want to say that every year Officer Matlock comes to pick up the turkey's. And every year he always tells everyone how much everything is needed for those that have nothing. This is a man that really cares and makes it a point to let people know how something that might seem like nothing to someone actually means the world to someone in need. Officer Matlock, thank you for really caring about everyday people that often get forgoten. And a special thanks to the Costco employees that donated!
