Imagine Thanksgiving with no food. With nothing special to give your kids or grandkids on a day when millions celebrate with beautiful meals. That is the reality for so many children and families in Appalachia. But it doesn’t have to be this way.Thanks to our supporters, in 2016, we were able to distribute 31,534 pounds of frozen turkey to our partners in Appalachia. That means that thousands of children and adults, who would have otherwise gone without, were able to enjoy a festive meal.

How you can help

A Turkey from you means so much more than a meal. A turkey on Thanksgiving means family, community, shared good times, and one evening of knowing that the family can gather and enjoy a full, wholesome, traditional meal without any worries – even if for just one day. Your generous support will ensure that families won’t have to make a choice – buy groceries for a week, or bust their budget for a once-a-year Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and these families need you!
