“If you think about it, that’s going to be up to 10,000 families that can receive that centerpiece,” Nate Springer, CEO, Care and Share. “It doesn’t matter about your culture or your background. We all gather around food so it just makes me happy to think about that.”

Care and Share’s goal is to collect 10,000 turkeys. Overall, they collected 8,010 which is still a pretty great number.
