WILLIAMSBURG — The James Maloney Foundation, with financial support from Williamsburg Pottery, has announced that it will be giving away turkeys ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Organized by the James City County Bruton Volunteer Fire Department, the Foundation plans to give away a total of 1,500 turkeys between Nov. 13-20, 2021.

This is just one of the many charitable initiatives that the Foundation has been able to host. In an Oct. 28 release from the Foundation and Pottery, it states that 100,000 face masks and over 2,000 hand sanitizers were given away to the community in the fight against COVID-19.

Additionally, the Foundation gives away scholarships totaling $2,500 a piece to two high school seniors from the four high schools served by Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools

Since the James Maloney Foundation was established in 2005 by Kim Maloney in honor of the foundation’s namesake; her late husband and the Pottery’s founder, it has donated almost $600,000 to support charitable services throughout the Historic Triangle.

The Foundation is supported through the proceeds taken in by the Williamsburg Pottery. The Oct. 28 release notes that for every dollar spent at the Pottery, a penny goes towards the philanthropic activities of the Foundation.

Those wishing to participate in this year’s turkey giveaway must first register through the Pottery’s website by clicking here. The first two hundred people to register will also receive a bottle of wine as a free gift.

The release states, “The Williamsburg Pottery and Kim Maloney want to wish the community a great holiday season and that the New Year [brings] great health and happiness to all.”

The Williamsburg Pottery was founded in 1938 and has remained an anchor in the Historic Triangle since. In 2011, it moved to its current location at 6692 Richmond Rd. near Norge.
