Approaching the holidays, everyone is getting into gear, but it’s another story for families who already have challenges putting food on the table.
Which is why it’s such good news that Second Harvest it putting on its sixth annual Turkey Drive with the help of hundreds of volunteers.Loblaws is generously contributing $5 for every turkey donated, up to a maximum of $10,000.
This year’s goal is 5,000 turkeys, purchased by those who can and want to, and then donated to Second Harvest.
Yesterday, at the Dupont and Christie store, we collected about 500 turkeys, which was a pretty good start.
Please help us reach our target by purchasing a frozen turkey for a hungry family. And Second Harvest spokesperson Jordan Mlynex is quick to point out that there’s another chance to donate next weekend.
Saturday, Dec. 13th and Sunday, Dec. 14th
(9 AM to 6 PM)
At these locations
Leslie & Lakeshore
Moore & Bayview
Queens Quay Market – Lower Jarvis
Victoria Park & Gerrard
Hoggs Hollow – Yonge & Yonge
Second Harvest volunteers will be in the frozen meat section to help you out.
Here’s an idea: become a volunteer yourself. The people are great, it feels very good and it’s a lot of fun.
