Seventeen years ago, we had the honor of starting the Troop Turkey Drive, a program where we donate groceries to feed qualified families through the food banks in their local areas.
Last year alone we provided Thanksgiving meals for approximately 28,000 people, with leftovers to boot, all in Ventura County. Since the beginning, we have easily fed over 200,000 people a holiday meal. This year our goal is to feed 30,000 people, or 3,000 families, including 750 recently adopted military families.
This year’s need is greater than ever and we need your help.
Please join us in this most worthy cause to help those in need.
The Cost is Only $25 per Meal
This provides each family a meal consisting of a 14-18 pound turkey, a 5-pound bag of potatoes, a box of stuffing, 2 cans of green beans, a can of cream of mushroom soup and fresh rolls. Pies may be provided if the budget allows. Each meal conservatively feeds at least 10 people.
Please donate by cash or check at $25 per meal, payable to Troop Community Foundation – a non-profit 501(c)3 foundation. You can mail them or drop them off at any of our branch office locations throughout Ventura County or Santa Clarita. You can donate as many meals as you wish.
Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.
