Nonprofit groups throughout Michigan, Ohio and Illinois received nearly 6,000 turkeys and other food items in time for Thanksgiving with the helop of various groups and organizations around the Midwest. The Associated Food and Petroleum Dealers headed the drive.

"Many retailers and other local business have given generously to this program," says Auday Arabo, AFPD president and CEO. "This is one way our local members work together with the community to provide families in need with a holiday meal."

Since 1980, AFPD has donated more than 80,000 turkeys in the Michigan, Ohio and Illinois areas.
