The Salvation Army is partnering with the California Highway Patrol to provide 250 turkey dinners for families selected to receive toys this holiday season as part of the 2012 CHiPs for Kids toy drive.

The community is encouraged to help out by participating in the 11 Days Before Christmas Drive Thru Turkey Drive Drop Off Event.

Drop off your fresh or frozen turkeys on Dec. 13 at the Salvation Army of Lodi at 525 W. Lockeford St. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The turkeys donated will be given to families chosen through the selection process. This is the second year the Salvation Army and the CHP have united forces. Referrals for the CHiP's for Kids program are provided by the CHP.

For more information, contact Blanca Luis or Capt. Martin Ross at 209-369-5896.

    Or you could give your turkeys to organizations that don't have a history of discrimination.

    The Salvation Army has roughly 55,000 employees worldwide, and has fought at every opportunity to limit the benefits it gives its LGBT employees -- and to inquire into the religious beliefs of its employees and potential hires.

    The organization is filled with homophobia and does not deserve our support.

    With so many great local organizations, why support this one?
