Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.COM) -- The CHUM Food Shelf will be receiving 125 turkeys donated by Leadership Duluth, a leadership development program of the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Thanksgiving turkeys will be delivered to the food shelf on Friday, November 16.

Each November, the leadership training day revolves around human services offered in the Duluth area and includes a visit to the CHUM food shelf.

During the visit in 2012, the Leadership Duluth Class of 2011 became aware of the need for Thanksgiving turkeys in the community. Responding to this need, the classmates donated 50 turkeys.

For the first time in years, the CHUM food shelf had enough turkeys to meet the community demand.
