Turkey Drive

Like you, the Kitchener-Conestoga Rotary Club believes every family should have a special Christmas dinner, including a turkey. With the generosity of local businesses and our community, The Turkey Drive has raised over $4,000,000 in support of House of Friendship’s Christmas Hamper Program over the past 19 years, which provides a gift of food to families in need during the holidays. Last year, you and fellow caring community members provided turkeys and food vouchers to 4,600 households over the holiday season. Over 14,500 people received our support.

Check out Turkey Drive listed in the Waterloo Region Record here.

Our Goal

Our goal this year is to raise $460,000.  This money helps:

  • Purchase turkeys and non-perishable food for 4600 households in our community

  • Support over 700 volunteers who help make all this possible

The impact

This project, in conjunction with other community groups, supports thousands of families in Waterloo Region.

  • A $100 donation will feed a family this holiday season

  • A $25 donation will provide a turkey, ham, or halal options as an important part of their holiday feast

All donations of $25 or more will receive a charitable donation tax receipt.
