A Turkey and Thirty

Thanksgiving is a holiday for everyone--something shared across communities, across faiths, across the country. Your gift of a turkey (or several turkeys!) will ensure that your neighbors who are struggling can join in the celebration. And your gift of cash will help put food on the table after the holiday has come to an end.

Or call 860-856-HELP (4357) to donate by phone!

As of November 23, we have met our goal and will be providing Thanksgiving dinner for 16,188 Greater Hartford individuals and families. The generous people of our region have also donated $511,540 to help feed these families all year long, and build lasting solutions to hunger. These requests come directly from our partner programs--food pantries and community kitchens--who serve our neighbors in need.

Be sure to check out our photo gallery to see all of the wonderful people who contributed to this event, or keep up with all of our Turkey and Thirty stories, pictures and more on our blog. And, of course there are still plenty of ways to get involved all year long. Learn More >
