Donating has become a tradition for some people.

Helena resident Mike Tolon said that he usually donates a turkey every year to support the cause, and has for the past 10 years.

The event had a total of about 20 volunteers throughout the day who helped load and unload turkeys from donors.

“The donations of cash will help the organization purchase sides for those that are getting meals for the holidays,” Helena Food Share communications director Patty White said.
