Great Turkey Thanksgiving Countdown

Hamming it up in 2021!

1,500 Turkeys Thanksgiving Feasts for 1,500 Local Families

Every year since 2007, our friends have banded together and delivered frozen turkeys with all the fixin’s to local families in our community who would not have a Thanksgiving Day celebration with out a little help from friends. This year due to COVID and availability, we continued the tradition by delivering Thanksgiving Family Meals with a spiral ham or turkey.

Because you gave of yourself, over 1,500 families had an AMAZING Thanksgiving Day!! You were a big part of this small revolution of kindness! It took all of you to make this happen!

  • Over 400 of you provided the food through your food or financial donation!
  • Over 100 of you packed the potatoes, sweet potatoes, and fixin’s!
  • Nearly 100 of you volunteered on Saturday to check-in drivers or pack and load the feasts for delivery.
  • 350 of you delivered the blessing to our neighbors. Most of you brought your families! What a blessing!!
  • And behind the scenes, there were dozens of volunteers who provided logistical and administrative support!

We estimate well over 2,500 volunteer hours were donated in addition to all the food!!!
