Brother Benno's Turkey Drive

Hello Rotary Friends,
It's that time of year again when Oceanside Rotary helps the homeless!  Please help make our annual tradition with Brother Bennos an overwhelming success!
This year we will be collecting frozen turkeys on November 12th.
Drop pf location is Oceanside Abbey Carpet & Floor, 4001 Avenida de la Plata, Oceanside 92056.  Drop off time is between 10 AM and 11 AM, we don't want those frozen turkeys defrosting before taking them to Brother Bennos, so please do not drop off the turkeys any earlier!
There will be a truck parked in front of Abbey's Carpets so just put them in the bed of the truck and we will do the rest!

Ivey Ranch is dedicated to encourage the interaction of those of all ages, with and without disabilities, by providing educational and recreational activities.  Since 1983 they have served children and adults with disabilities but will not exclude the able bodied, since interaction, inclusion and interaction are important components of their program.  They serve over 200 individuals a month.
