At long last, at North Mianus School, the event the 500+ students have anticipated for weeks, the Turkey Fowl, went off without a hitch. In fact, the event took a new, exciting twist when the school’s two PE teachers, Scott Moroney and Patrick Prisinzano followed through on a promise to have their heads shaved into mohawks. All for a great cause.

Nancy Coughlin, executive director of Neighbor to Neighbor, was on hand to explain. “They do a food drive and have a free throw shooting contest,” she said. “Whoever shoots the most baskets in the ‘fowl shooting’ contest wins the turkey and donates it to Neighbor to Neighbor.”

Coughlin said the school has previously done a food drive, but this was the first year to migrate it to the internet. “The goal was $5,000 and they exceeded it. People are still donating. Having the drive online has several advantages,” Coughlin continued. “This has been by far the most successful online food drive so far. Though GYFL also had a greatly successful drive online too.”

Coughlin said the way the online fundraiser works is the donor goes online to AmpYourGood.com and buys food for Neighbor to Neighbor. “We pick out  on the website what we need – It’s mostly fresh produce,” Coughlin said. “It saves us from having to go to the store to get it.”
