Turkeys donated to food pantry

In the true spirit of Thanksgiving, The River Valley Longbeards, the Clermont County chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation (NWTF), donated more than 100 turkeys to the Clermont County YWCA food pantry Nov. 21.

This year, the NWTF’s Turkey Hunters Care Program, which is in its fourth year, teamed up with the Clermont County 4-H Program and the Clermont County Farm Bureau to provide needy families in the area with not just turkeys, but a complete and traditional Thanksgiving meal.

“The River Valley Longbeards have been one of the 4-H shooting sports club major contributors of equipment and supplies since its inception four years ago,” said Longbeards president Dave Williamson.
