Albany, N.Y. – In an effort to show appreciation for the sacrifices of active duty service members, veterans and their families this Thanksgiving, Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets today provided free turkeys to active duty and retired military personnel through the seventh annual “Turkeys for Veterans” program.
Officials from Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets hand-delivered approximately 3,600 pounds of turkey to active duty service members and veterans at the law firm’s headquarters at 441 New Karner Road in Albany throughout the afternoon.
