Gobbling With Gratitude Initiative Gives Back To Our Area Educators

Nelson County, Virginia

Nelson 151 is partnering with Nelson County volunteer parents and KellyBronze

Turkey Farm this November for Gobbling With Gratitude, a fundraising initiative designed to

provide every Nelson County Schools employee with a free, high-quality turkey just in time for

area Thanksgiving celebrations.

Fundraisers will be executed across participating Nelson 151 member businesses on Sunday,

November 20th with sales proceeds from those dates helping to finance the donation. Separate

fundraising initiatives from Nelson County volunteer parents as a part of the ONE Nelson

initiative will also ensure that all 256 Nelson County Schools employees are provided with

award-winning and highly regarded KellyBronze Farms turkeys for the upcoming holiday


School employee recipients will be able to receive their free KellyBronze Farms turkey on

Monday, November 21 and Tuesday, November 22 with pick-up locations and timing

communicated across appropriate internal channels.

Gobbling With Gratitude marks another exciting giving campaign for Nelson 151 members to

complement the annual 12 Days of Christmas initiative which will return in December 2022 to

award additional grants to Nelson County-based civic organizations.

Taylor Smack, Blue Mountain Brewery Owner & Gobbling With Gratitude organizer, remarked

that, “This initiative is just one fun and tangible way the community can show appreciation for

our area educators and support staff who have endured so much pandemic-related upheaval

over the last 2+ years. The professionals that support and educate the residents of Nelson

County deserve recognition for all that they do to build the foundation of our community, and

we’re excited to extend complimentary turkeys to all NCS staff as a gesture of thanks during the

holiday season.”
