The Royal Palm Beach Unilocal Turkey Drive took place on Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Publix store at the Crossroads plaza. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Blue Bell Ice Cream, Sunny 107.9 and WFTL 850 AM radio sponsored the event. People could donate a Publix-brand turkey, which were on sale, or they could donate money to be used to buy turkeys. A total of 750 turkeys were collected to be given out to pre-selected local residents. Blue Bell Ice Cream gave a free half gallon of ice cream to the first 100 people who made a donation.
