As we approach the most gluttonous holiday of the year, this Thanksgiving the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is asking residents to remember those who are less fortunate. And on Saturday, volunteers did just that at a turkey drive at St. Peter the Apostle Church in River Edge.

This is one of 48 sites statewide collected thousands of turkeys for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey this weekend.

One family pulled up to the turkey drive with 100 frozen turkeys.

FiOS1 News' own news anchor Karla Barguiarena also joined in helping the group of church parishioners unload the turkeys and trimmings from donors.

The turkeys will be distributed to families who may not have otherwise been able to afford the holiday staple through the food bank and local churches.
