SANTA MARIA,Calif. -

The season of giving is here and so is the busiest time for Foodbanks in Santa Barbara County.

The community turkey drive kicked off on Friday and already the Santa Maria location has had a large donation.

One local family generously donated 100 frozen turkeys. They also announced a challenge for the community. If the community can donate another 100 turkeys, they will ask a friend to donate an additional 100 turkeys.

The Food banks goal is to reach 3,000 turkeys this season. If you want to help donate, its easy www.foodbanksbc.org or call (805) 967-574.1
