With the help of volunteers and neighbors, Sanibel residents Henry and Sandy Peterson organized the fifth annual Sanibel East End Turkey Drop and Roll on Nov. 28 at their home on Lagoon Drive. The event served as a drop-off point for donations of frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items to benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida. The couple reported that 61 turkeys, weighing a total of 962 pounds, and 277 pounds of dry food were donated this year. Also, checks were donated to the food bank totaling $2,405. The Petersons extended a big thank you to all participants.
