Volunteers will also be needed at 1 p.m. Friday to help move the boxes from the FISH headquarters, 2805 King Street, to Aldersgate Church, 5500 Sayle Street in Greenville.

Help is also requested, starting at 6 a.m. Saturday, at Daybreak Produce, 1661 Interstate 30 Frontage Road (just east of the intersection of Interstate 30 and FM 1570) in Greenville,  with the loading of the turkeys and produce for the distribution sites.
