MONTECITO, Calif. - Four Montecito-area churches held a successful turkey drive on Sunday morning.
All Saints-by-the-Sea Church, El Montecito Presbyterian Church, Montecito Covenant Church, and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church organized the turkey drive.
The four churches collected 1,185 turkeys, 249 chickens and raised over $5,000 for the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and the Catholic Charity’s Food Pantry.
Last year the four churches collected about 750 turkeys. This year's poultry goal was to collect 1,000 birds, a number the churches beat handily.
