Thanksgiving Turkey & Food Drive Giveaway Event

Save to Favorites

Heart of Compassion Distribution


With the joyous season of holidays upon us, we know there are many families in need who need a helping hand in these difficult times. We will be hosting a Thanksgiving Turkey & Food Drive Giveaway to help more than 1,000 families put a nice Thanksgiving meal on their table this year. This event will include live music, djs, and many giveaways.

This will be a drive-thru event, due to COVID precautions. Recipients will be able to stay in their vehicles and drive through the parking lot and volunteers will help load groceries and Thanksgiving fixings into waiting vehicles.

As this will be a much larger event than our weekly public food distributions, we will need many more volunteers than other events we host. Feel free to invite friends and family members to join us as volunteers!
