WR Bernard Berrian, in partnership with Second Harvest Heartland and with teammates and members of the Minnesota Wild, will put on his 2nd annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway and challenge today in Minneapolis.
Berrian, along with teammates Sidney Rice, Chester Taylor, Pat Williams and Jimmy Kennedy, will be joined by Wild players Derek Boogaard and James Sheppard to personally handout 75 Thanksgiving turkeys to those in need. Also at the event, Berrian will announce a $5,000 personal donation to Second Harvest Heartland to provide 500 Thanksgiving turkeys to inner-city families in the Twin Cities and he will challenge the Twin Cities community to put a turkey on every table this Thanksgiving by donating to Second Harvest Heartland through November 25.
In its inaugural year, the Bernard Berrian Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway and Challenge with Second Harvest Heartland provided 500 turkeys to those in need in the Twin Cities and resulted in a total of $45,000 in additional contributions to Second Harvest Heartland. Second Harvest Heartland has a mission of ending hunger through community partnerships. The hunger-relief organization serves 59 counties in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and distributed a total of 41 million pounds of food last year.
