Gobbling With Gratitude Initiative Gives Back to Nelson County Educators This Thanksgiving

Nelson 151 is partnering with Nelson County Parent Volunteers and KellyBronze Turkey Farm this month for Gobbling With Gratitude, a fundraising initiative designed to provide every Nelson County school employee with a free turkey from high quality just in time for Thanksgiving celebrations.

Fundraisers will be run at participating Nelson 151 member businesses on Sunday, November 20, with proceeds from sales from those dates helping to fund the donation. Separate fundraising initiatives from Nelson County parent volunteers through the ONE Nelson initiative will also ensure that the 256 staff at the Nelson County school receive a turkey for the upcoming holiday.

Recipient school employees will be able to receive their free turkey on Monday, November 21 and Tuesday, November 22.

Gobbling With Gratitude marks another exciting giving drive for Nelson 151 members to complement the annual 12 Days of Christmas initiative returning in December 2022 to award additional grants to civic organizations in Nelson County.

“This initiative is just a fun and tangible way for the community to show appreciation for our educators and support staff who have endured so much pandemic-related upheaval over the past 2 years,” Taylor Smack said. , owner of Blue Mountain Brewery and Gobbling With Gratitude Organizer. “The professionals who support and educate the residents of Nelson County deserve recognition for all they do to build the foundations of our community, and we are thrilled to provide free turkeys to all NCS staff in as a thank you during the holiday season. ”
