2,975 Thanksgiving Turkeys needed

25 on hand.
This is the situation being experienced by the Food Bank of Santa Barbara.

Having a slow start is nothing new, but this year’s level is unprecedented, according to development associate Gina Fischer. She said she hopes Santa Barbara residents may not yet be in the Thanksgiving mind-set, and that a reminder will spur people into action.

“If we can’t collect all these turkeys, that’s a lot of nonprofit food pantries and soup kitchens that don’t get them,” Fischer said. - Noozhawk

You mean to tell me, between them all they can't come up with some spare change to give some of their local neighbors a little something to eat on Thanksgiving?
