The homeless-oriented non-profit is asking individuals and organizations to collect and drop off proteins (ham, beef, pork, poultry) and monetary gifts to support the shelter guests and community members who rely on the kitchen for 170,000 meals a year.
Last year, the effort raised $56,000 and 450 turkeys. One80 Place provided 3,600 nutritious meals with the donated proteins and used the monetary donations to provide its clients with the programs and services needed to end their homelessness. Organizers hope to collect $60,000 and collect 400 turkeys this year.
“Turkey and a $20” contributors can expect to enjoy a smooth drop off service, thanks to volunteers and local groups on hand to receive donations. Contributors will also have the chance to snap car-side selfies with local personalities, newscasters, and sport mascots. For those that cannot come by on November 26th, community members can pledge their support by buying a virtual turkey online at www.one80place.org/donate-turkey.
To show support and encourage others to donate, those who contribute to the “Turkey and a $20” donation drive will receive an ‘I Donated’ sticker that they can then wear and also share on social media platforms. One80 Place hopes that this ‘I Donated’ sticker movement will trigger others to give thanks this holiday season and support the cause.
One80 Place is located at 35 Walnut Street. Click here for more information.
