Two local deejays are preparing to spend the next week in an R-V in the hopes of collecting 4,000 turkeys.

The annual Thanks 4 Giving Turkey Drive takes place out front of the Vestal WalMart. Lori from Mix 103 and Matt Gapske of Now 105.7 are collecting birds and all the trimmings on behalf of Catholic Charities. The donations supply Thanksgiving baskets and holiday dinners provided by local parishes and other organizations.

"We've had several people in the past come to us and say, 'This was me last year' or 'I had trouble and I struggled. And I want to give back this year.' I've been doing this since 2007 and the way the community comes out is amazing," said Lori.

Lori and Matt will be in the R.V. from tomorrow through next Friday. The goal is to fill two freezer trucks. You can track their progress at TurkeyTally.com.
