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 provided free turkeys to active duty and retired military personnel this Thanksgiving through the eighth annual “Turkeys for Veterans” program.
Officials from Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets hand-delivered more than 3,000 pounds of turkey to active duty service members and veterans at the law firm’s headquarters at 441 New Karner Road in Albany on Monday, November 21 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This Thanksgiving marks the eighth year for the “Turkeys for Veterans” program, which was launched by Tully Rinckey PLLC in 2009.

Rinckey.
