Greater Boston Food Bank Turkey Drive

11/03/2010 12:05:00 AM
I know that there has to be a lot of you reading that have $13 to spare for a good cause.  The Greater Boston Food Bank is doing a Turkey Drive to make sure that less fortunate families out there have a turkey on the table this year for Thanksgiving.

Their goal is to hit 40,000 turkeys and as of right now (I just checked) they're up to 30,866.  Let's help them reach their goal. 

This Thanksgiving, people across eastern Massachusetts will gather with family and friends for a delicious meal to give thanks. Unfortunately, in those same communities, thousands of those less fortunate will sit down to empty tables. This is where The Greater Boston Food Bank steps in to help.

In 2009, The Food Bank launched an online Turkey Drive to help raise funds to purchase turkeys to distribute to families who would otherwise go hungry on Thanksgiving Day. In its first year, the Turkey Drive raised enough money to distribute an additional 4,862 turkeys which helped increase the total number of turkeys distributed to 39,121 families in need in eastern Massachusetts.

This Year: In 2010, The Food Bank will once again hold an online Turkey Drive with the goal of distributing 40,000 turkeys to families in need.

· For every $13 donation, The Food Bank can distribute a 12-14-lb turkey to a deserving family in eastern Massachusetts.
· Individuals/corporations/organizations can form Turkey Teams, set team-specific goals and encourage friends and family members to donate.
· Every time someone makes a donation, the Turkey Ticker on the official website increases, allowing for real time tracking of what is needed to reach our goal.
