“AT&T is pleased to be able to help less fortunate families in the Richmond area at a time when many household budgets are limited and holiday budgets are tight,” Celeste Spear, AT&T’s Director of Sales for Virginia, said in a statement. “By giving away turkeys, AT&T can help FeedMore’s Mobile Pantry Program ensure that families throughout our community are better able to celebrate Thanksgiving this year.”

FeedMore uses the refrigerated Mobile Pantry to bring donated food directly to neighborhoods of “high need.”
