It's that time of year, everyone here at Q2 is getting ready for Turkey Tuesday. This year's Turkey Tuesday will take place tomorrow, November 13th from 6 in the morning, to 6 at night.
You can drop off frozen turkeys, other non perishable food items and cash donations here at KTVQ studios located at 3203 3rd Avenue North.
All food and cash collected will go to the Billings Food Bank to help families in need of a meal this Thanksgiving. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas last year, the community helped out more than 11,000 families with donations to the Billings Food Bank.
When asked about community response during the holiday season, Billings Food Bank Executive Director Sheryle Shandy said "Oh, it's wonderful. I mean this community has never let any appeal go unanswered. Not just ours, any community project."
The Billings Food Bank is also looking for volunteers the week of Thanksgiving to organize and prepare food that will be given away. The organization also hosts a Thanksgiving Day dinner, they are looking for volunteers to lend a helping hand. Shandy said this is the perfect opportunity for someone that wants to help out but might not be able to donate food or money. For more information or to sign up, call the Billings Food Bank at (406)259-2856.
