It's that time again!

Hard to imagine this, but our annual Free The Z turkey drive will be here before you know it. On Tuesday, Nov. 15, Z107.3 will once again move in at the Brewer Hannaford parking lot to team up with the amazing team at Penquis CAP, to collect turkeys and donations to help feed people right here in our community.

Last year, as the pandemic continued on, all of you came through in a big way, with a whopping 3,076 turkeys collected. Coming anywhere close to that huge number would be amazing, so once again we ask for your help. This year one turkey equals $15 toward our goal. I hope all of you can help us make 2022 another successful Free The Z.

From school kids to teachers, to businesses, a former governor of Maine, TV stations, police officers, firemen, EMTs, pets, and nurses, we have had so many generous people either donate their time, services, and hard-earned money to this important and now iconic event.

Mark your calendar, and tell your friends that our 22nd annual “Free The Z” turkey drive begins Tuesday, November 15, at 6 am, in the Brewer Hannaford parking lot, and runs till Thursday night at 6 pm (assuming we hit our goal of 2022 turkeys!)

Help us, help our community, and we will all have a great Thanksgiving!

If you can't make it in person to donate, you can text FREETHEZ to 44321 or donate online.

Since we started way back in the day, we have gathered quite a few photos of our time there, so we have compiled the ultimate Free The Z photo gallery for all of you to enjoy! There have been so many memories over the years, who knows, maybe you are in one of these classic photos!

Enjoy this amazing photo gallery of turkey drive moments!
