CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - One thousand people in Northeast Ohio will have a turkey dinner thanks to a donation from Kisling, Nestico & Redick during the KNR Coats and Cans for Kids Turkey Giveaway Nov. 20, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, families were not asked to bring a non-perishable food item or gently used coat to receive a free turkey this year.

This year, KNR staff has donated food and coats in place of community members to help families in need.
