FISH hosting turkey drive in Carson City

CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - Friends in Service Helping (FISH) is hosting a turkey drive Thursday at the Nissan Carson City off Carson Street.

Jim Peckam with FISH said the organization’s goal is to collect 1,000 turkeys to help the people it serves during and after the holidays.

According to Peckham a lot of the people FISH helps live paycheck to paycheck. He said, “About 85% of our clients are the working poor if you will. A car repair could put them in a difficult situation.”

FISH will also accept sides and monetary donations.

The event is happening until 6 p.m.
