For the past 37 years, the Drexel University community has lent its support to the Annual Alumni Holiday Turkey Project, providing holiday turkeys to families in-need within the university's neighborhood.
In 2009, more than 65 alumni, faculty, staff, student, and community volunteers distributed turkeys to nearly 60 community organizations in West Philadelphia and to families served by Drexel's 11th Street Family Health Services Center. Through the generous support of the Drexel community and the Alumni Association's partnership with the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, together the project provided 1,400 families with holiday turkeys.

Once again, the generosity of the Drexel community will help provide a festive holiday meal to families in the university’s neighborhood. The need for support continues to grow each year and we ask you to please consider supporting the project. A donation of $25 will provide 2-3 families with turkey dinners for the holiday season.
Alumni, students, faculty and friends can help by making a donation to the project and by volunteering to assist with the turkey distribution in December.
Donations to the Turkey Project are accepted year-round. The need for support continues to grow each year and we ask you to please consider supporting the project.
