Event FAQ

What is the turkey goal this year?

This year, we are aiming to collect 5,000 turkeys! The more turkeys we receive, the more individuals and families will be blessed in our community.

Can I give to Turkey Drop?

Absolutely! Monetary gifts are accepted before, on or after Turkey Drop day. With every $20 donated, we are able to buy at least one turkey. 

How do you use monetary donations?

The funds that help us reach our goal will be used to purchase turkeys for the Thanksgiving Community Meal. Any gifts raised above and beyond the goal will go towards feeding the guests in the winter months, as 1 in 3 families are now food insecure.
