The Drexel University Alumni Association is proud to continue its annual tradition of providing holiday turkeys to in-need families within the University's West Philadelphia neighborhood and to those served by Drexel's 11th Street Family Health Services Center in North Philadelphia.
For the past 39 years, the Drexel University community has lent its support to the Annual Alumni Holiday Turkey Project. 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.
In 2012, more than 80 Drexel alumni, faculty, staff, and community volunteers distributed turkeys to 34 community organizations. Through the generous support of the Drexel community, they provided 1,000 families with holiday turkeys. Click here to check out footage from CBS Philly (CBS 3/KYW) of the 2012 distribution event!
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. A donation of $30 will provide at least 2 families with turkey dinners for the holiday season. There are three ways to support the Turkey Project with a gift:
