These turkeys and meal packages will be handed out for FREE for people in need. Also, people are asked to arrive early because they are an anticipating long lines.

There are two Distribution sites taking place TODAY Friday November 20th, 2020:

South Toms River Elementary School on Dover Road will start at 9:30 am. Start time might be a little earlier, so you can line up earlier because of those anticipated long lines.

The Presbyterian Church of Toms River on Hooper Avenue starts at 11:00 am but the volunteers are at the church as early as 7:30 am.

**These Thanksgiving meals, including turkey, are not just for Toms River residents. You do not have to show identification or register.
