Church hosts turkey drive

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)- In preparation for Thanksgiving, a group from the United Methodist Church is baking and selling hundreds of turkeys.  The money raised goes to help the church but also other causes in the community.

"Not all of the money goes to our church function, a portion of it does but like last year, Jonesboro Church Health Center was moving and we gave our entire profit to them to buy equipment for their new location" says organizer Harry Puddephatt.

Before Saturday's baking began, all but ten of the over 300 turkeys cooked had already been sold.  This is the 9th year for this fundraiser.
