KIRTLAND — A food donation made by a Farmington man to a local charitable organization will help feed more than 200 people this Christmas.

A steer was donated by Tommy Bolack to the Salvation Army of Farmington and will be included in the special Christmas dinner food boxes being distributed this week, according to a Salvation Army press release. 

Lt. Darla Malone of the Farmington Salvation Army said it was the only meat donated to the organization for the Christmas dinner food boxes this holiday season.

San Juan Meats in Kirtland offered to store the meat for the Salvation Army because the organization didn’t have the freezer space.

The meat was picked up this afternoon and is part of food and toy distribution program planned by the Salvation Army for Thursday morning.
