Each year we serve upwards of 1.5 million meals to over 10,000 families in need, at St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters. The holidays can be an especially challenging time for our network of over 40 pantries, soup kitchens, drop in shelters and their New York City area clients. This is where our Thanksgiving Turkey Drive 2013 comes into place!

Our goal was to collect and deliver 5,000 Thanksgiving turkeys for these deserving people, many of whom are within our own neighborhoods. With the generosity of our supporters we were able to blow past our goal and distribute over 7,000 turkeys plus hundreds of cases of food!

An overwhelming sense of gratitude was expressed by our clients, who were thankful to have one less thing to worry about this Thanksgiving. This allowed them to be able to truly focus on their families and togetherness - what the holidays are truly be about.

This year's Thanksgiving turkey drive was one of our most successful yet. Thankfully, our volunteers helped us to distribute turkeys smoothly!

"I am so happy and cannot wait to prepare this delicious turkey for Thanksgiving." There were turkeys as far as the eye could see, and our clients were so thankful.

Volunteers pose for a quick photo op in between preparing turkeys this Thanksgiving. "Happy Thanksgiving, I hope that you enjoy this delicious meal."

Smiling faces were hard to miss as our clients proudly showed off their turkeys! In addition to distributing turkeys we were able to provide hundreds of cases of food!

"We are so grateful to St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters and their turkey drive."
