On Saturday, November 22nd, the owners of Shirley Auto Body loaded up their truck and delivered 71 turkeys to St. Jude’s Outreach to help feed needy families on Thanksgiving Day.
“This is our 3rd year that we have been fortunate enough to give back to the community,” said owner Anthony Posanti.
Proud to call Shirley their home, Anthony’s parents moved to this community in 1973. He was born and raised here and now raising his own daughter in Shirley.
Shirley Auto Body has been serving the community since 1974.
“We have been so blessed being able to operate our small business in this wonderful community for over 30 years now,” Anthony explained. “Giving back, especially during the holiday season, is our way making sure that everyone will have a special Thanksgiving.”
Anthony had some wonderful people helping him deliver all of the heavy turkeys to St. Jude. His father Joseph Posanti, his sister Kate Devenney, and her children Charleigh and Michael Devenney and his daughter Gwen Posanti all pitched in to make the day special.
When asked how it felt to help, 9-year-old Gwen said, “It feels really good to help people in need so they can feed their family for Thanksgiving.”
