Bernard Berrian’s Third Annual Turkey Drive

November 18, 2010 By: Lindsi Category: WordPress Import

While Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian may have his mind on the big Vikings-Packers game this weekend, he’s also planning for next week’s third annual turkey giveaway supporting Second Harvest Heartland!

Bernard’s generosity has resulted in more than $100,000 in donations to Second Harvest Heartland over the past three years—money that has helped provide Thanksgiving turkeys to hungry families in some of the neediest neighborhoods of Minneapolis. He is passionate about helping inner youth, and even more specifically, on ensuring that inner city youth have the good nutrition they need to succeed in school and life. Next week, Bernard and his friends will hand out 50 turkeys to families in need at Sabathani, a community center serving a culturally diverse population in South Minneapolis.

Because of Bernard’s support over the past few years, we’ve been able to provide the equivalent of 360,000 meals for our neighbors who may have otherwise not had food on Thanksgiving Day. Now that is something to be thankful for!

You can find more information about Bernard’s Turkey Drive here, or join him in his efforts by making a gift to Second Harvest Heartland.
