Like you, my colleagues and I in the Kitchener Conestoga Rotary Club (KCRC) believe every family should have a special Christmas dinner, including a turkey. With the generosity of local businesses and our community, KCRC’s Turkey Drive has raised over $1,200,000 in support of House of Friendship’s Christmas Hamper Program, which provides a gift of food to families in need at Christmas-time.
What is the need in our community?
Here are the facts for the 2013 Turkey Drive. We need to raise a minimum of $300,000 in the next four weeks to:
- purchase 3,700 turkeys
- supply food products for 4,250 hampers
- recruit 600 volunteers to pack, deliver and distribute the turkeys and hampers
- help make Christmas just a little better for over 12,000 in our community
What will that cost?
KCRC’s 2013 Turkey Drive goal is $300,000. We know this is a big goal, but we believe if we all pitch in a little, we will reach this goal, and more importantly reach thousands of local families. Each donation of $100 will feed a family of four (including a hamper and turkey). For as little as a donation of $25.00, you can sponsor a turkey (all donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt). How many families will you help feed? How many turkeys can you sponsor?
