Thanksgiving is about a week away. But turkey is on the menu to help kick off an annual bike and toy drive Wednesday.

"The Turkey Man" Russ Francisco from Marine General stopped by Good Morning Northland Wednesday to deep fry some turkeys and talk about the annual event, which benefits the Salvation Army. It runs Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Francisco said he will be deep frying 50 turkeys in front of Marine General in Duluth to kick off the drive. No purchase is necessary to enjoy some deep fried bird.

If you can't drop off a gift today, the drive runs through December. You can drop off bikes, toys and money donations at Bedrock Bar as well.
