7th annual Bethpage Turkey Drive held Wednesday

Bethpage Federal Credit Union held their 7th annual Turkey Drive to benefit Long Island Harvest on Wednesday.



The drive aims to make sure Long Island's hungry have a meal for Thanksgiving next Thursday.



Officials say this year is at an unprecedented high, with over 316,000 Long Islanders in need of a meal, including 110,000 children.



A total of 570 Long Island food pantries and community agencies will directly benefit from the drive.



Organizers are asking for frozen turkeys, non-perishable foods, supermarket vouchers or cash.
