Vandergrift, Pa. – At least 40 residents in the Kiski and Vandergrift areas received Thanksgiving turkeys, potatoes, celery, and several other food items as part of the 4th annual event to help feed the needy on Thanksgiving Day.

Vandergrift Police Officer Joe Gray said donated items come in from St. Vincent DePaul, Jones farm donated 40 turkeys, and multiple donations come in from private donors working in conjunction with the Kiski Area School District SRO and the social workers to help those less fortunate.

Several residents came to the police station in Vandergrift to pick up a turkey and a box full of food on Sunday afternoon. Those residents who were unable to make the trip were treated with home delivery by Vandergrift Police Officer Nate Rigatti.

Cari Rigatti, father of Nate Rigatti told AKVNEWS.COM the community is fortunate for the past several years now as Mr. Dave Jones of the Jones Turkey Farm has been donating to the Vandergrift police department cause. Vandergrift police are instrumental in feeding a Thanksgiving dinner to needy residents of Vandergrift. They get everything they need to cook and enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with their families said Rigatti. Dave Jones has been working with missions and feeding the Pittsburgh homeless for years. When asked why he says, “I’m fortunate to be able to help.”
