As Troop Real Estate, Inc. companywide provided thousands of Thanksgiving meals to Ventura County’s needy recently, the drive received a major boost from the firm’s Santa Paula and Fillmore offices, which delivered turkey dinners for 760 people through the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clara Valley.
Scott Dunbar, manager of the offices, reports that the Thanksgiving turkeys and all the trimmings, part of Troop’s 13th Annual “Turkey-A-Thon”, were divided in half between the Santa Paula and Fillmore Boys and Girls Clubs.
“We received huge contributions from both the community at large and the Rotary Club of Santa Paula, in addition to a host of our own Troop agents and associates. All of these people worked diligently to raise the money needed to secure these meals. The positive result brought smiles to a lot of young people and made their Thanksgiving, as well as ours, brighter,” said Scott Dunbar, manager of the Troop offices.Dunbar reported that overall Troop’s “Turkey-A-Thon” fed nearly 2500 families, or approximately 20,000 people, throughout Ventura County just prior to Thanksgiving. This included 500 military families at the Seabee base in Port Hueneme.
“Over the years, our ‘Turkey-A-Thon’ has fed over 150,000 needy individuals throughout the county working in concert with local food pantries, charities, and organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, which we focus on. Each year, these organizations look forward to and express genuine gratitude for the work we do,” Dunbar said.
