Cyd Jokisch is affectionately known as the 'Turkey Lady' and for good reason.

Each year the Raymore woman raises money to purchase hundreds of turkeys and then donates them to charity.

Jokisch hit an all-time high for donations this year, collecting more than $8,500 to buy 643 turkeys.

She donates them to the Salvation Army for its holiday meals and meal delivery programs around the Kansas City Metro during Thanksgiving and throughout the year.
