YAKIMA, WA -- Instead of hunting turkeys, they're giving turkeys.

The Yakima Basin Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation delivered about 65 frozen turkeys to Northwest Harvest on Wednesday. Then they took nearly a dozen more to the Flying H Youth Ranch in the Nile. The group said they're giving about $1,000 worth of turkeys to families in need.

"We all live in the area," said Ross Huffman with the Yakima Basin Chapter of the NWTF. "We want to help out people that need it. The Turkey Federation's dedicated to helping people."

Chapter Members said it's important to think of those less fortunate, especially during the holiday season. This is the fourth year the Yakima Basin Chapter has donated to Northwest Harvest.
