All of this was made possible by the generous donations made by those who came to turkey bingo at the Atkins Northland Funeral Home on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Twice a year the funeral home hosts a bingo fundraiser - turkey bingo at Thanksgiving and ham bingo at Easter. Nonperishable food items and/or cash are collected from the bingo attendees. All cash donations are then matched by Bob and Karen Atkins of the Atkins Northland Funeral Home.

"It is always a great time and a great opportunity to help others by supporting the food shelf," commented Bob.
