DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) -- Turkeys From Heaven has extended the cutoff date for turkey donations.

They are accepting donations through December 21st for for turkeys or money donations.

The organization still needs another 1400 turkeys to prepare for less fortunate families this Chrstmas.

Co-Founder Rebecca Marsella says she is confident the people of the Wiregrass will come together to match their total.

She said "We've had the same problem the last two years and the last two days, everyone comes out and really shows up and buys the turkeys and we meet our goal every year. So I feel like we'll do it again this year with help of people like you all who are trying to promote the event for us."
