VINELAND — For a decade Project Thanksgiving, an annual turkey and fund-raiser drive, has been doing its best to ensure families don’t go without a hearty meal on Thanksgiving Day.

It’s certainly come a long way from when city residents Alex Kaganzev and Steve Plevins co-founded the project. In its first year more than 300 birds were collected. Fast forward to 2018, and Project Thanksgiving is aiming to break last year’s record of more than 1,200 donations.

This year’s turkey drive is scheduled to be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. The project will once again support qualified families throughout Cumberland and Gloucester counties through the Salvation Army and Food Bank of South Jersey.

Collection sites are:

• ShopRite, Sewell, 328 Egg Harbor Road

9 a.m.-5 p.m.

• ShopRite, Mullica Hill, 143 Bridgeton

Pike, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

• Franklin Bank, Woolwich Township, 99

Center Square Road, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

• Franklin Bank, Franklinville, 2039

Delsea Dr., 8:30 a.m.-noon

• Franklin Bank, Woodstown, 1179 Route

40, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

A collection will also be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16 at the Amish Market in Mullica Hill. And donations will also be taken at Fan Zone Headquarters and the Baker Place in Vineland.

According to Kaganzev, project coordinator, in addition to turkeys, donations of supermarket vouchers and cash or checks will be accepted. Furthermore, donations will also be taken weekdays at the Vineland/Millville Salvation Army located at 733 E. Chestnut Ave., Vineland.
