Marine General Turkey Fry and Bike Drive

Created: 11/20/2013 9:12 AM

Russ Francisco from Marine General stopped by Good Morning Northland on Wednesday to show us how he fries up a turkey...and of course to tell us about how to donate to the Salvation Army!

He and his crew will be frying up 55 turkeys for a great cause. From 10:00-3:00 PM on November 20th, you can head on down to Marine General on London Road in Duluth for a free, fresh turkey sandwich.

And while you're there, you can help make the holidays happen for some kids in the Twin Ports. You can donate money, new toys or new bikes to the cause, and Marine General will get them to the Salvation Army.

The donation drive itself runs through December 20th, so get out there and donate!
