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.  This means that thousands of families in our community will receive over 4600 food hampers, including a turkey, this holiday season.

Our Goal

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

  • Purchase turkeys and non-perishable food for 4600 food hampers, all distributed 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.
