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 nearly $3,000,000 in support of House of Friendship’s Christmas Hamper Program over the past 15 years, which provides a gift of food to families in need during the holidays.

What is the need?

We need to raise $400,000 by December 24th so we can:

  • purchase turkeys and other food items to fill 4,000 hampers
  • recruit 600 volunteers to pack and distribute the turkeys and hampers
  • help make Christmas just a little better for over 12,000 in our community                                                                                                                                                                                                         How many families can you help feed?

What Will That Cost?

The 2018 Turkey Drive goal is $400,000. 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 $25 will receive a charitable tax receipt.
