The Thanksgiving donations started with a partnership from Muhammad Wilkerson’s Team 96; thereafter, turkeys were donated by Meridia Living and Total Specialties USA, Inc.; and nonperishable items were given by Dr. Fauzia Ahmed’s Internal Medicine practice, and city residents, Patricia Kertis, Suzanne Lang and many others.
“Every little bit helps and counts. These families have expressed their gratefulness in receiving these donations,” said Mayor Armstead. “Linden is about Community, Diversity and Progress,” he added.
