Cheboygan deputies hand out free turkeys thanks to anonymous donor

PRESS RELEASE FROM CHEBOYGAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE:

Cheboygan County deputies will once again be handing out turkeys for the holidays thanks again to an anonymous donor.

“This donor’s generosity for the past several years is remarkable,” said Sheriff Clarmont. “The deputies so far have handed out 36 turkeys for Thanksgiving. We will hand out roughly 36 more for Christmas with the donated thousand dollars we received.”

Sheriff Clarmont said the people receiving the turkeys are very thankful and this also allows the deputies to interact and create a positive impact on those they meet.

“Our hope as well as the donor is to bring a little holiday joy to those that could use a hand up this year,” said Clarmont.
