(WTNH) — Connecticut Foodshare works throughout the year to help people who struggle with hunger. Around the holidays, they help families in need with their Turkey and Thirty campaign.

The organization announced Tuesday that it has surpassed its turkey goal, collecting and distributing all 51,291 turkeys requested by Connecticut families through their partner food pantries and meal programs.

This was the organization’s first Turkey and Thirty campaign as one statewide organization.

“The only reason we reached our goal is because the entire state of Connecticut rallied to help our neighbors in need,” said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO of Connecticut Foodshare.

There is still time to donate this holiday season. If you would like to help, visit www.ctfoodshare.org.
