Jack White’s Third Man Records to hold Thanksgiving turkey drive

The star has teamed up with Nashville Rescue Mission to help the city's needy

Jack White has teamed up with Nashville Rescue Mission to hold the ‘Great Third Man Turkey Drive’ later this month, reports Rolling Stone.

Customers at the Third Man Records store in the city can donate turkeys or other essential items such as non-perishable food and winter clothing until November 26. Those that do will be rewarded with a free seven inch record of their choice and will have their photo taken with their chosen record to be posted on the store’s Wall Of Fame.

Third Man are also offering a prize to whoever donates the most turkeys, with the recipient awarded with a rare triple-decker vinyl be The Dead Weather, the band White fronts alongside The Kills’ Allison Mosshart. Only 300 copies of the record, which features a seven inch within a 12 inch, were made in 2010.


The Nashville Rescue Mission hold a Thanksgiving banquet every year, reportedly providing 1,000 turkeys for the city’s underprivileged families. Third Man have stated their desire to get involved in 2013 was due to wanting to give back to their neighbourhood.
