Turkeython Receives Record Number Of Turkey Requests

Last year Richard Bazzy and his team from Shultz Ford gave away more than 1300 turkeys, this year they set a new record.

This time of year is especially important for Pittsburgh area car dealer Richard Bazzy. Every year his Turkeython takes requests from people who need a little holiday help putting a turkey on the table for Thanksgiving.

Richard and his team from Shults Ford partnered with 100.7 STAR's "Bubba Show" and Entercom Pittsburgh to get the word out for anyone in need. On my morning radio show "The Inside Story with Marty Griffin" on KDKA Radio, I talked to Richard about why he does this every year and what it means to him.

When the requests were all tallied up at the end of the day Monday, the total number set a new record for requests... 1,670! Just one day later people will pick up their turkeys at

Shults Ford locations in Harmarville, Wexford and West Mifflin .
