Talking Turkey !

Like you, the Kitchener-Conestoga Rotary Club (KCRC) believes every family should have a special Christmas dinner, including a turkey.
With the generosity of local businesses and our community, KCRC’s Turkey Drive has raised over $2,700,000 in support of House of Friendship’s Christmas Hamper Program over the past 10 years, which provides a gift of food to families in need at Christmas time.

What is the need?

We need to raise a minimum of $375,000 by December 24th to:

  • purchase 3,800 turkeys including 800 halal turkeys
  • supply food products for 4,100 hampers
  • recruit 600 volunteers to pack and distribute the turkeys and hampers
  • help make Christmas just a little better for over 11,500 in our community

What Will That Cost?

KCRC’s 2017 Turkey Drive goal is $375,000. We know this is a big goal, but we believe if we all pitch in a little, we will reach this goal, and more importantly feed thousands of local families.

Each donation of $100 will feed a family of four (including a hamper and turkey). For as little as a donation of $25.00, you can purchase a turkey. All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt.

How many families will you help feed? How many turkeys can you purchase?
