Nov. 23, 2010 - PRLog -- BURLINGTON, N.C. (November 23, 2010) - Every Thanksgiving season, Brenda Allen of
Loaves & Fishes, a local food ministry, can't wait to hear from National Agents
Alliance's Jane Albright.

For the fifth straight year, Jane Albright, wife of National Agents
Alliance  CEO and President Andy Albright, called Allen to
see how many more turkeys her non-profit organization needed donated in order to
feed more than 7,000 people in and around Alamance County.
Allen's number? 150 turkeys.

Every year the number is different, but Jane Albright's answer is always the same.
The number doesn't matter to the Albright family, who once again made sure Loaves &
Fishes would meet its turkey quota for Thursday's meals.

"It's something I don't like to advertise, but it's something we like to do," Jane
Albright said Tuesday. "For our family, it isn't Thanksgiving without a turkey. We
want families to be able to enjoy a turkey together because it's an important time
for us where we sit down and eat together. We don't do it for recognition and we
don't even like people to know we are doing it. We do it because we are able and
want to do it. It gives us a good feeling doing it."

Allen, the executive director and founder of Loaves & Fishes, said close to 7,000
people will be able to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal Thursday, thanks to
donations from churches, businesses and people like the Albrights.

By Thursday afternoon, Allen estimates that more than 6,200 turkeys will have been
served to families that otherwise would not have been able to afford a turkey and
other traditional side dishes on Thanksgiving.

Allen said she didn't get her first turkey donation until last Thursday, which made
the last week hectic trying to make sure each family would have a full meal. She
said Food Lion helped with costs by keeping each turkey to around 14 pounds.
Allen said the first time Jane Albright called to help provide turkeys she was
"shocked" by her generosity. Now, she looks forward to the call every year.

"Jane called me Tuesday and said, 'hey, this is the turkey fairy.' How many turkeys
do you need this year," Allen said. "Jane's just our special angel because she calls
and asks how many we need to feed all the people. It's just awesome. She's doesn't
even want people to know she's doing it.

"She's helping so many people and she doesn't realize how much it means. That's the
best part about it. Some people want to give you something that's a dollar and they
want all this praise and credit. Then, there's somebody that gives so much like (the
Albrights) and they don't want any recognition or credit for it."
