BANGOR, Maine (WABI) The holidays are upon us which means it is the season for giving.
WABI TV5 and Z107.3 are partnering with Penquis to once again help families in need this Thanksgiving.
It starts Tuesday morning with Free the Z's 17th Annual Turkey Drive.
"The Kid" from Z107.3 will spend three days and two nights in the Hannaford parking lot in Brewer sleeping in a trailer at night and broadcasting live during the day until he collects at least 2017 turkeys.
Then on Thursday, WABI will continue a 20 year tradition by holding our Turkey Telethon during the 5pm and 6pm newscasts.
We'll be asking our viewers to call in and make a pledge that will help Penquis buy enough turkeys to donate to dozens of food pantries throughout Eastern, Central, and Northern Maine.
If you can't get to Brewer or won't be available to call in Thursday night, you can make a donation right now by going to Penquis.org/turkeydonation
We thank you in advance for your generous support.
