It’s Turkey Time!
Foodshare’s annual Turkey and Thirty campaign kicked off on November 1. They will continue the annual tradition of providing Thanksgiving meals and raising funds to fight hunger year-round. In an effort to keep everyone safe, this year’s campaign will look a little different. Here are some updates:
To preserve collective safety, they have suspended in-person turkey collection drives this year. Instead, Foodshare has purchased some turkeys in advance to meet our clients’ needs.
Community members will be able to donate to Foodshare to support the purchase of a turkey (or more!) for a neighbor in need. Your monetary gift will help Foodshare achieve our goal; to provide thousands of families with the food they need on Thanksgiving and beyond.
By sharing this news with your network you can double or triple your impact for this year’s Turkey and Thirty campaign!
The demand for food assistance has increased significantly during the pandemic, so your support now is critical. Foodshare expects that we’ll need to distribute more than 20,000 turkeys this year. Please support our efforts today by donating online.
Food & Fund Drives
Individuals, organizations, and community groups can participate in the Turkey and Thirty campaign by organizing an online drive in their community. To learn more about how you can help, please contact Communication Coordinator, Dyani Williams or 860‑856‑4341.
