Senator Anwar to Join Foodshare for Upcoming Turkey Donation Drives in East Windsor, East Hartford

State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) announced today he will join Foodshare for several turkey donation drives in coming weeks to support local food pantries in the leadup to the Thanksgiving holiday.

“As we head into the holiday season, let us not forget to help others in our community, especially those in need,” said Sen.

Members of the public are asked to donate whole turkeys to Foodshare at the event as well as non-perishable food products. All proceeds will be donated to local food pantries ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Cash donations will also be accepted.

Sen. Anwar will volunteer at the following turkey drives:

  • On Thursday, November 14 from 8 to 10 a.m. at East Windsor Town Hall, 11 Rye Street in Broad Brook, Foodshare and Sen. Anwar will join the East Windsor Police Department and East Windsor Recreation and Community Services.
