One thousand turkeys will be donated at the YVYL and CAPSBC Turkey Resource and Gift Fair on November 19th.

Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy and Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County are looking for volunteers for the November 19 raffle. Volunteer registrations can be made on the respective website of each organization.

While the 1,000 turkeys have already been reserved for families in need through registration, the Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy (YVYLA) and the Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Raffle and Resource Fair San Bernardino County has a lot to offer.

For those living in the county, with ID, children can still take advantage of free eye exams and glasses, physicals for children and adults, COVID-19 and flu shots, along with social service tools and resources from 33 other sellers on the site.

“It’s very important for children to have proper vision. There are many studies on how children are more likely to be distracted in school and act out when they can’t see the board, because they can’t concentrate. So Vision to Learn will administer same-day eye exams and provide children with prescription glasses on the spot,” said YVYLA CEO Terrance Stone.

Another essential addition to the event is the inclusion of job agencies from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“We have 33 vendors scheduled to attend the Turkey Giveaway and Resource Fair. In addition to having mental and physical health resources, an employment agency will be on site and assist adults with job placement with one of their partner employers,” said YVYLA Events Coordinator Jennifer Rosales.

During the four-hour event there will also be a food truck serving free hot food.

“At Young Visionaries, we are proud to serve young people throughout San Bernardino County. From mental health, to mentoring, providing academic support, social services and more, our goal is to use our tools and resources as a means to keep our youth on track,” concluded Rosales.

“Seventeen years ago, YVYLA started this annual turkey giveaway with just 25 turkeys. But this year, and for the past few years, we’ve been blessed to give away 1,000 turkeys and boxes of Thanksgiving food , and we couldn’t have made such an impact without our partners at CAPSBC,” Stone concluded.

The Thanksgiving Turkey Raffle and Resurrection Fair will be located at 696 S. Tippecanoe Ave., San Bernardino.
