Richland dentist's turkey drive not taking off

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Cadwell Dental offices on Keene Road are collecting frozen turkeys and money to donate to the Tri-Cities Food Bank before Thanksgiving.

Dr. Cadwell has promised to match each frozen bird, and dollar for dollar to everyone who donates.

But so far, only two birds have been donated. "we were pretty shocked that our own food bank doesn't have frozen turkeys to give to families and friends in need So that's what we're trying to do, create that awareness," said Jeff Rugan Cadwell Dental's marketing director.

The drive started on November 6th and will continue through the 20th. To donate, drop off your bird at 475 Keene Road. Or call 509-627-6888.
