= The Salvation Army’s Feed Nevada Day and Turkey Drop event will be held 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Nov. 17.

The Turkey Drop is an annual event in which the community donates turkeys so those struggling with hunger can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Radio show hosts of NewsTalk780 KOH, including Jon Sanchez, host of The Jon Sanchez Show, will broadcast each program live, from each drop-off location, in order to collaborate throughout the day and raise awareness of our neighbors in need in the Northern Nevada community.

Volunteers will be ready to accept donations of frozen turkeys at one of the designated drop-off locations:

Sanchez Ranch Meat Company – 1734 Highway 395, Minden.

Max Casino – 900 South Carson St., Carson City.

Monetary donations will also be accepted to purchase additional turkeys.
