The Spooner House annual frozen turkey and fixings drive will feature four locations during the week of November 14. More people than ever in the lower Naugatuck Valley are in need of support to obtain all the ingredients necessary for satisfying holiday meals. Hundreds more non-perishable fixings, frozen turkeys and/or cash donations will be needed to fill the void this year, so Spooner House is asking everyone to be as generous as possible.
Smile Dental Centers owner, Dr. Bruce Sofferman, along with his wife Deborah Sofferman and their daughter Sophia Sofferman will be wearing traditional Pilgrim and Native American costumes and joined by a turkey mascot as they attempt to flag down drivers to drop off turkeys and fixings from 7 to 10 a.m. in Oxford on Wednesday, Nov. 16. at 318 Oxford Road (Route 67) and again on Thursday Nov. 17, from 7 to 10 a.m. at the R.D. Scinto Corporate Park, located at One Corporate Drive in Shelton.
Dr. Sofferman’s Smile Dental Centers at 318 Oxford Road in Oxford and 61 Elizabeth Street in Derby will also be collecting frozen turkeys and fixings all week during regular business hours Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 14-18.
The final drive location will be collecting only frozen turkeys on Sat., Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Seymour. The 8th Grade Gold Team from Seymour Middle School is again sponsoring this drop off location at 211 Mountain Road.
