The Hoboken Fire Department together with Hopes Head Start donated 50 turkeys to families in need this year.
From Andrew Frey, on behalf of Locals 1078/1076:
This year, the tradition almost didn't happen.
The turkeys are generally delivered to the Hoboken store which was badly damaged by super storm sandy.
After speaking to Barbara from Inserra supermarkets, the only option to make this tradition continue was to pick up the turkeys from a Shoprite in Stony Point, NY (Rockland County).
The turkeys were made possible by Mr. Larry Inserra of Inserra supermarkets which is based in Mahwah, NJ.
The HFD would like to thank Mr. Inserra of Inserra supermarkets and Ms. Barbara Clapsaddle, as well as Stony Point Shoprite manager Peter Cavo and the store employee Terrell Sterling for loading the turkeys. Your efforts and generosity are forever thankful.
The HFD wishes all Hoboken residents a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe Holiday season.
