Legislators donate turkeys to ‘Rock out Hunger’

Members of the Erie County Legislature’s Minority Caucus recently donated and delivered 40 turkeys during 97 Rock and the Food Bank of Western New York’s 13th annual “Rock out Hunger” drive at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital.

All donations collected helped provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need. This year, 3,874 turkeys were collected along with a tractor-trailer full of food. Legislators Ed Rath, Lynne Dixon and Joe Lorigo delivered turkeys on behalf of the caucus.

Dixon thanked the sponsors of the campaign, along with the volunteers and donors, for making the donations possible.

“We are proud to support this important community-wide effort to help feed families in need,” she said.

Rath also thanked everyone for their generous donations.

“’Rock out Hunger’ is on track to be another success in helping feed families for Thanksgiving. We appreciate the collaboration between the Food Bank, DJ Jickster and all community partners to make this campaign possible year after year.”

Lorigo said, “Thank you to all who have contributed to this outstanding cause. Our caucus is always proud to play a small role in helping 97 Rock and the Food Bank meet their goal of ensuring every family has access to a Thanksgiving meal.”
