Servant's Heart of Indy founder Bill Boone issues instructions to volunteers just before the distribution of food items begins to over 200 client families that are a part of what Boone terms “The World's Largest Turkey Dinner Drive-Thru.” Efforts in Franklin Township produce the collection of more than 7,700 canned food items that help with the Servant's Heart mission of assisting Southside families.
