November 24, 2014 – Albany, N.Y. – In an effort to show appreciation for the sacrifices of active duty service members, veterans and their families, Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets once again provided free turkeys to active duty and retired military personnel this Thanksgiving through the sixth annual “Turkeys for Veterans” program.
Officials from Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets hand delivered the turkeys to active duty service members and veterans at the law firm’s headquarters at 441 New Karner Road in Albany midday Monday.
