TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - — Our 7th annual Turkey Drive, in partnership with Second Harvest of the Big Bend, has come to an end.

Thanks to the generosity of the community, we've been able to donate 1,000 turkeys and more than $46,000 to Second Harvest of the Big Bend.

A big thank you to our community partners at the City of Tallahassee Police Department, Tallahassee Downtown and Peter Boulware Toyota.

In 2014, ABC 27 launched the inaugural "Turkey Drive." In that first year, we collected 253 turkeys and $3,620 in cash.

Since then, the generosity of the community has grown the drive into one of the largest fundraisers for Second Harvest of the Big Bend.
