A Turkey and Thirty

2016 VFD / T30 Teamraiser header

Thanksgiving is a holiday for everyone--shared across communities, across faiths, across the country. In 2016, thanks to you, we were able to provide a hot meal for 15,871 Greater Hartford individuals and families!

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, it's never too late to help--hunger is a year-round issue. Your gift of cash will help us continue our work after the holiday has come to an end.

How You Can Help Today
