And it is still not too late to participate in the collection of food for those grocery bags.

Today (Friday) between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Orono IGA the 'Not Your Average Nurses Foundation' are collecting turkeys for the cause. And not just turkeys.   The goal is 100 turkeys for local veterans along with 100 pounds of hamburger, and 100 pounds of bacon. The volunteers are collecting cash donations too.

Mission Accomplished. And now, if you are a veteran and need a reusable cloth grocery bag full of non-perishables you are in luck.

This Sunday only from 8am - 12pm Maine Veterans Project will be handing out a lot of food, and any vet is invited to stop buy and and get a bag & a turkey. There will be deer meat and fresh potatoes as well.
