Thanks to some generous gobblers, the Utica Rescue Mission now has 2,000 turkeys for Thanksgiving.

The local real estate firm Coldwell Banker Faith Properties donated 2,000 pounds of turkey to be split between the Utica and Rome Rescue Missions:

"It seems like salespeople are always asking and few ever give. That is what our company is about, and fortunately, we've been rewarded with a business second to none by our own communities, so it's a way to pay back," John Brown, owner of Coldwell Banker Faith Properties, said.

According to WKTV, the Rescue Mission does not have a branch in Herkimer County, so Coldwell Banker will assist in stocking the food kitchens in that county next week. The business has been doing this event for the past 10 years.
