The biggest gift of 500 Turkeys mission is to help hundreds of people to know the joy of serving our community & how easy it can be.

It is literally NOT POSSIBLE to feed these families without our volunteers. Find one spot or several opportunities to live out your heart of service.

Family Pre-Boxing Nights
Nov 13 & 14, 6p-8p

There is a strict age limit of kids this year.  
Kids THIRD GRADE and up that can lift at least 30 LBS are welcome to attend.   This is for safety reasons.  

We understand this may limit the participation.  Please consider that we need to make these choices based on safety and the operational flow of boxing 1300 meals in two 2 hour evenings.  We will only be open the volunteer spots to the people who signed up in advance.

We appreciate your time and understanding as we do our very best to feed a community with you.

Distribution Days
