SHOUT OUT: Doing even better than they’d hoped, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino’s Community Outreach Unit brought 380 donated turkeys from this year’s annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive to the Center for Food Action’s Saddle Brook location today.

The unit set a target of 300 turkeys to help the CFA meet this year’s goal of providing Thanksgiving meals to 11,200 neighbors in 90 communities throughout North Jersey.

Each meal will include a turkey, a roasting pan and fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as canned and boxed goods such as cranberry sauce, cornbread mix and stuffing, center officials said.

Sheriff’s officers collected turkeys from police, businesses, government employees and others, BCSO spokesman Joseph Hornyak said.
