Thanksgiving Turkey Handout and Donation

November 27, 2018
A man in a green jacket and blue jeans hands a sack filled with a turkey to a man with a white baseball cap with a black jacket, blue jeans and a backpack.  Three other men are in the background standing in or beside a small refrigerated box truck which contains more sacks of turkeys which will be handed out.

Each year, Jacobs purchases one turkey for each of its employees who work in the Bloomfield location.  The week before Thanksgiving, the turkeys are delivered, and employees can choose to either pick up their turkey for their Thanksgiving celebration or donate it to Foodshare, a local food bank in Bloomfield. 

This year, over 200 turkeys were gifted to Foodshare by Jacobs’ employees.  This helped Foodshare in its quest to provide turkey dinners to families across the state of Connecticut. To learn more about Foodshare or how you can help, visit
