Thanksgiving weekend is right around the corner and Country 101.1 wants to make sure that everyone in our community has a warm meal this holiday weekend.  Join us in collecting turkeys for the Ottawa Mission as part of the Country 101.1 Turkey Drop at 2001 Thurston Drive!   We are asking that you help us raise as many turkeys as we can so that all 2800 plates of Thanksgiving dinner at the Ottawa Mission include turkey. You can drop off a turkey at 2001 Thurston Drive Tuesday October 2nd 6:30am-5:00pm and Wednesday October 3rd 6:30am – 3:00pm and we will deliver them all to the Ottawa Mission in time for Thanksgiving dinner!   About The Ottawa Missions’ annual Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner: It will be held on Monday, October 8th in The Mission’s dining room at 35 Waller Street. This year, the shelter expects to serve between 2,700 and 2,800 plates of turkey dinner, which is more than double the number of breakfasts, lunches and dinners normally served on a regular day. It takes between 80 and 90 large frozen turkeys to serve everyone in need a plate a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner. What does it take to make dinner for so many?

  • 2,500 pounds of turkey
