Common Heart Great Turkey Countdown

One of New City's local partners, Common Heart, is gearing up to deliver 1,500 turkey baskets to families throughout the local community who would not have a Thanksgiving Day celebration without a little help from their friends. Each basket includes everything a family needs to make their own meal—a frozen turkey (or ham), veggies, stuffing, sweet potatoes, fresh potatoes, dessert, and cranberry sauce!

Common Heart needs help to reach their goal!
