To Provide Meals With a Smile
The 11th Annual Neighborhood Holiday Turkey Drive at St. Emydius Church is happening in the months of November and December. Thanks to generous past donations, since 2012 we have grown in amazing ways. Imagine that last year alone, all donations amounted to enough food to serve over 62,000 meals at the St. Anthony's Dining Room!
At the drop-off site of this SF Turkey Drive, over the years, we have experienced heavy rain, cold mornings, strong wind, thick smoke and warm sunshine. Last year, we returned to our drop-off site after the COVID-19 pandemic and it was so refreshing collecting turkeys and meeting so many cheerful donors. We will be there again this year at 350 De Montfort Avenue, across St Emydius Church.
Our slogan this year is "To Provide Meals With a Smile". The inflation right after a pandemic has put so many people in an incredibly hard place never experienced before in their lifetime; they are in need of the most basic...food. Folks have been flocking to food banks and soup kitchens around the country to be able to feed their families.
Now, for the second year in a row, St. Anthony needs an even more enormous amount of food from us. Indeed, we will be the ONLY food drop-off site for their organization. They definitely count on us to bring the food for the Holidays and beyond. So, on Saturdays November 19 and December 17, come on down to 350 DeMontfort Avenue (parking lot across St. Emydius Church) with your donations of turkeys (preferably frozen) and boxes of fresh vegetables. If your are not able to stop by then, your contribution by check or by credit card can be easily made as well in both months of November and December.
Together, we are making a difference To Provide Meals With a Smile.
