RANCHO CORDOVA, CA – Senator Tom Berryhill’s district staff on Monday distributed 100 Thanksgiving turkeys to the Rancho Cordova community in partnership with Golden State Water Company’s Operation Gobble program.
The Thanksgiving turkeys were distributed to community-based organizations that serve individuals and families with limited resources who may otherwise go without a meal this Thanksgiving holiday. Senator Berryhill, R-Modesto, has participated in the event for many years.
“This has become one of my favorite events of the year,” Berryhill said. “Operation Gobble is a wonderful program and I am so grateful for the opportunity to bring a little holiday cheer to families in need.”
Golden State Water is partnering with elected officials and community leaders throughout the state during November to distribute more than 8,000 turkeys through the Operation Gobble effort.
“We appreciate Senator Berryhill’s dedication to serving the community, and are proud of this partnership that will provide holiday meals for local families with limited resources,” said Ronald Moore, Golden State Water’s Operation Gobble project leader. “Operation Gobble has been a Golden State Water tradition for 27 years, and we have partnered with elected officials and community leaders to distribute more than 224,000 turkeys since the program’s inception.”
Community organizations that received turkeys today include: Cordova Community Food Locker and Elks Lodge.
