(WHTM) — Wednesday’s hometown hero made its annual holiday donation.

Giant foods delivered 1,500 turkeys to Central Pennsylvania Food Bank for Thanksgiving. Another 1,000 turkeys are going to other food banks and nonprofits.

“We know there are still about 33,000 people who are facing food insecurity. So when it comes time for the holidays, they want wonderful meals to share with family and friends,” Jennifer Sands of the Central Pa. Food Bank said.

“Customers can get involved as well by donating their turkey certificates that they can redeem in our stores right now through thanksgiving and those donations we give out to food banks as well,” Jessica Groves of the Giant Company said.
