  Funding approved for Thanksgiving turkey donations
SAN BERNARDINO – The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved funding
to purchase at least 475 turkeys for community Thanksgiving celebrations for
underprivileged families in San Bernardino County.

Chairman Paul Biane and Fifth District Supervisor Josie Gonzales requested the
$5,000 allocation from the Board of Supervisors’ priority policy budget. The
Transitional Assistance Department (TAD) will use the money to purchase
turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners hosted by community-based organizations.

“The county will provide the turkeys so our community organizations can focus
on the trimmings and serving needy residents during the holiday,” said Biane,
who serves as the county’s Second District Supervisor.

TAD estimates more than 1,250 San Bernardino County residents will attend free
Thanksgiving dinners hosted by community-based organizations such as the
Oldtimers Foundation, the Dorothy Grant Foundation, and Ephesians New
Testament Church in Fontana.
